The Baton of Ownership Passes at De Hoek

Johann and Emma Redelinghuys and their family, the original founders of this award winning, elegant, Magaliesburg Country House Hotel, have sold the business to Isaac and Khumo Shongwe who now become the sole owners. Isaac is the founder and Chairman of Letsema Holdings – a ‘buy and hold’ investment Company- in which he founded Letsema Consulting which is a leading black owned consulting company. Off that platform, Isaac created the Letsema Foundation, a catalyst for social change. The Africa Leadership Initiative (ALI) is one of the programmes that the Letsema foundation supports. Khumo is a businesswoman invested in several companies. She was until the beginning of 2013 an Executive Director of Royal Bafokeng Holdings. Most of her career has been spent in the Mining industry in the Human Capital and Sustainability space. She now sits on a number of Boards as an independent non-executive director.

She and Isaac established the YALI programme, a younger version of the Africa Leadership Initiative. The YALI programme is premised on ALI principles and caters for the 25 to 35 year old professionals.

“It is a privilege for us to be handed the baton of ownership from the Redelinghuys family, the founders of such a special establishment, who have loved and cared for De Hoek Country Hotel for the last 25 years”, said Khumo.

Khumo looks forward to being involved with the future of De Hoek, and will work closely with General Manager Gavin Ferriera, and in support of the wonderful and capable team that continue to operate the Hotel.
