As South Africa prepares for the 2024 elections, it’s not only the candidates and their parties that are under scrutiny but also the digital infrastructure carrying the nationwide event. The efficiency, reliability, and security of this infrastructure are paramount, and the head of this digital fortitude is none other than Serame Taukobong.



With over thirty years in digital technology, Taukobong has the necessary experience, expertise and commitment to ensure the seamless operation of the voting process. His team will be working tirelessly behind the scenes to deliver a robust, secure, and efficient infrastructure that will support South Africa’s democratic process.



In a country with more than 59 million potential voters, Taukobong's role is anything but trivial. He leads an organization that, for the past three decades, has underpinned all of South Africa’s democratic elections. This reliable digital framework ensures that every adult in the country can freely exercise their most basic democratic right—voting.


While South Africans head to the polls in 2024, they will not merely be casting votes for their preferred candidates. Unbeknownst to many, they will also be expressing a silent vote of confidence in the integral infrastructure and the dedicated team that makes the democratic process possible.
