About Us

Connecting people, through knowledge and empowerment.

The 4 Basic Concepts driving the vision of Silulo Ulutho Technologies:


Silulo is pioneering technology in emerging and rural communities in and around the Eastern and Western Cape. The lack of IT services and digital knowledge in these areas has created a niche market for the company.
We have built a network of supporters and clientele within the community as well as establishing relations with local and national companies.
Technology enables communication and collaboration within communities and reaches beyond barriers. Silulo aims to inspire and educate through technology.
‘Knowledge is the result of the drive to learn and a need to exceed limitations.’

In 2006, Luvuyo Rani opened up an Internet café in the dusty townships of Cape Town. Today this businessman and founder of Silulo Ulutho Technologies employs over 170 people in branches in the Eastern and Western Cape. Mr Rani was a commerce teacher in Cape Town when the Department of Education implemented Outcomes Based Education which saw teachers use computers to assist students. Seeing his colleagues using computers for the first time and struggle with the technology gave him an idea that would years later, put him on the business stage with some of the world’s top entrepreneurs. Initially, he sold computers from the boot of his car with teachers as his primary targets. Gradually, Luvuyo could saw a gap within the ICT sector, there was little if any digital knowledge in the townships and that gap gave birth to the concept of Silulo Ulutho Technologies. The company started as an Internet café but there was a growing demand for computer training in the community. Luvuyo says that most of the people in townships struggled to get employed because they lacked computer literacy and the company offered basic computer skills and training for them. With the help of his partners Nandipha Matshoba and his younger brother Lonwabo Rani, the brand has grown immensely throughout the years.

Silulo Ulutho Technologies has empowered thousands of people in the Eastern and Western Cape. With branches all over the two provinces, the business has grown to more than an internet café and training centre; it offers technical support, as well as branding and signage services and has teamed up with companies such as Telkom and Canon amongst others.
