“That shows how committed they were as a team to raise funds for such a cause,” said CML Group Marketing Manager, Malebogo Sesinyi.

CML had sponsored Uhuru TeamBW 2021, which comprised of professional experts in different fields and GBV victims.

The team Captain Monkgogi Oankgoga Thakgathi said Team UhuruBW will continue fundraising to assist GBV victims.
