PHUTHALICHABA IS A NAME OF A NEW FINANCIAL COOPORATIVE TO BE INCUBATED UNDER THE NUL INNOVATION HUB.

 

Highly excited prospective members of the new financial cooperative to be incubated under the NUL INNOVATION HUB voted on the name.

The name chosen was PHUTHALICHABA.

Prospective members, who are about 300 at the moment (the number is growing fast), were given a chance to vote in WhatsApp groups. In just 30 minutes, they came up with different names and then voted on the best name.

PHUTHALICHABA won the race and no other name even came close.

Viva PHUTHALICHABA Viva!

The name could have won the race for obvious reasons.
