Want to know more about Sakhu?

Sakhu has a long history: it was first formed as a co-operative institution

(2002/000056/24) in October 2002 by Wezi Ximiya and Antonie van Rensburg with the purpose of offering management advisory services and social development interventions.

During the past three years, we have experienced the co-operative form as restricting our ability to do business because of SARS, CIPC, and KYC banking requirements.

Sakhu Cooperative was subsequently transformed into a new private limited liability company in 2016, enabling it to participate freely in corporate activities in the general pursuit of a sustainable wealth-creating business.

In 2017, the team decided to transform the corporate side of the business to leverage the new Industry4.0 technology revolution, whilst at the same time retaining the social development part of the business to provide corporates with the opportunity to spend enterprise development and social development resources at community level.
