About the Founder:

Like most of us, Cecilia M. Kapasula’s career path was unclear in her early years. Although she was encouraged to follow her own path from her family, she matriculated with the decision to study Cost & Management Accounting. Accounting was her favourite subject and she completely ignored her passion as she was best known for organising off-site beauty pagents and endof  year parties in high school. She always replied: “I love to make people happy” when asked about her future career.

She has acquired over 10 years experience in the administration sector. Her journey started as a receptionist. She dropped out of the University of Johannesburg after 2 years of attempting to tackle her chosen career path. Although her work kept her grounded and paid the bills, she was always reminded of her passion and she felt extremely limited.

She was offered a position to go work and live in Ghana for a year in 2009. Her passion for Africa expanded as she visited many other countries in Africa and spent 5 years in Gabon. These experiences marked the birth of her future.

In 2011, she joined forces with her sister Rhoda Speka and started a catering business. Divine Catering took off very quickly after it was featured on a TV show called Its My Biz on Etv. Eventually it was clear that she and her team were not equipped financially nor with the practical experience and knowledge to run the business so she closed shop. After she regained her force and focus, she was even more determined to make her next business a success.

These days, she is “adding a piece of Africa in your life” through her African-inspired custom made furniture and interior decor by Home Of Sweet Savannah. Her designs offer exclusivity. Apart from creating decorative pieces, she also offers interior decor, re-upholstery & space-uplift consulting services.

She aims to reach international shores & markets.
