Our dream is a future where everyONE has access to technology
“I wanted to create a company that made a difference. It is about helping to build a better tomorrow for our beautiful country and its people.” – Siddika Osman
And that applies to our people too. ONE Technologies is not only committed to offering access to quality tech at prices South Africans can afford, but to empowering those on our team, our internship programme and within our local communities through outreach programmes.
Proven track record
Ten years ago, in 2013, ONE Technologies CEO, Siddika Osman, and COO, Sagaren Kanniappen, broke away from the corporate world to create Nkgwete IT Solutions, providing and managing IT outsourced services and solutions.
Today Nkgwete, which means Champion, is a powerhouse, a majority black female owned Level 1 B-BBBEE Qualifying Small Enterprise, with a national presence, and a reputation for integrity, delivery and exceptional service to some of South Africa’s best known brands.

Championing opportunities for young South Africans
The Nkgwete Foundation strives to uplift South Africans, particularly young women, and to promote opportunity and equality for our South African youth.
Aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those around gender empowerment, it led to a partnership with banking giant, FNB, Tshwane University of Technology and local schools to promote STEM subjects and opportunities with promising young female students.
