Our Name

Kigima (Hurry Up) came about in answer to the URGENT need for technically skilled people in South Africa and to compliment what was expressed by our President, using the all African word Vukuzenzele (Get Up & Do Something for yourself) Therefore our advice to people in the automotive trade looking to further their skills is: Kigima, Vukuzenzele  – Hurry Up! Get Up! & Do Something for YOURSELF!
