No. There is nothing so horrible as having to stand in a crowd of people hoping your name will be drawn, plus since there are so many prizes, this is going to be a very long process. We will spare you the ordeal of all this. Anybody who wish to be present during the draw will be welcome to attend, but to be a winner, you do not have to be at the draw.

The winners draw will be overseen by the same financial company that will audit the final account of this competition to ensure total transparency and that the draw is fair and above board.

Karabo-inc is a division of AkukhanYa that is still in development, therefore the bank account is lying dormant at present. To ensure that the income from the campaign is not absorbed by one of the beneficiaries' operational account, but totally separate and accountable we decided to use this account for the time being. As soon as the campaign is more established, the bank will open a separate KhuYa Campaign account for us. The account is closely monitored by our auditor to ensure that there is no hanly panky going on with the monies generated through this campaign. The money for the various beneficiaries will be paid out of this account into their business account. Full disclosure will be recorded in the monthly and final year end financial report.
