Named By: Mbuso Dlamini – Customer Support Team
Name Meaning: This is named after a plant that bears purple fruit. It’s English name is Lantana Rugosa, but the Zulu name is UBUKHWEBEZANA. “The reason why I chose it is that we grew up in a rural area and we used to enjoy hunting those fruits during summer and the purple colour will draw our eyes from far away. The same as our Company does when it comes to customer service. We draw our client’s attention with our purple colour and our excellent service.”
