Godiragetse (Godi) Mogajane, a young CEO and entrepreneur from Hammanskraal is alleviating unemployment and creating jobs in townships. At just 25, Godi has been able to launch Delivery Ka Speed in over 10 townships in a space of two years and plans to take it nationwide. Delivery Ka Speed simply means “Speedy Delivery” in Sepitori. Sepitori is the urban lingua franca of Pretoria and the Tshwane metropolitan area in South Africa. It is a combination of Tswana and influences from Tsotsitaal, Afrikaans and other Bantu languages of the region.
Delivery Ka Speed is a food delivery service for Ekasi. They believe in bringing accessibility to townships and elevating the Kasi lifestyle. Being from the township himself, Godi identified two problems that communities were faced with. Firstly, he recognised the unpleasant customer journey that people go through to get fast food in the townships. Secondly, he acknowledged the increasing rate of youth unemployment in the townships.
In order to solve these problems, Delivery Ka Speed was formed to not only alleviate unemployment amongst the youth but also create a pleasant customer experience. This platform has given many young people a chance to provide for their families and contribute to economic growth. Delivery Ka Speed works with locals and only hires South African youth. They have over 40 drivers in all locations they operate in. The locations that Delivery Ka Speed operates in are namely; Hammanskraal, Soshanguve, Mobopane, Katlehong, Sky City, Vosloorus, Tsakane, Mamelodi, Hebron and recently Bela-Bela in Limpopo. Delivery Ka Speed will be launching in Mankweng on the 24th of March 2023. They have also had the honor to win the Top Services Brand Award at the Top 16 Youth-Owned Brands Awards.
According to Godi, innovation is a critical vehicle for inspiring change, and as a result of this, he has been driven to adding value and creating transformational change by using his uncanny instincts, hence the development of Delivery Ka Speed.
Delivery Ka Speed is still growing and is expected to dominate townships all across South Africa.
