Ke Zaka is warm-hearted content that seeks to capture hearts and emotions of ordinary South Africans who carry a vision for a better life through Stokvels and Burial Societies. Ke Zaka aims to empower Stokvels and Burial Societies to know and grow their money. Each week Ke Zaka episode profiles a Stokvel or Burial Society group. We meet the members; we understand their journey (achievements and challenges). We go through the group’s effort as they strive towards a solution that will promote sustainability and financial growth of the group. Ke Zaka documents the group’s challenges and provides practical interventions.

“Ke Zaka is relevant content on the Channel looking at the economic and financial status quo in the country right now. Unfortunately we are a country that has challenges with money saving and shows like Ke Zaka tries to alleviate such difficulties. Individual savings tends to be problematic especially as far as discipline is concerned. Programmes like Ke Zaka are there to assist the communities in showing them ways and means of how to save in the form of groups and societies. The show is a must watch especially for people already in established stokvels and those with intentions of starting stokvels” said Tshilidzi Davhana – Commissioning Editor.
