After a nationwide search a very confident and determined George Baloyi (52) from Soshanguve, Gauteng, was voted the winner of the prestigious 2015 Championship Boerewors competition.
Baloyi’s name was revealed in Cape Town on Tuesday 15 September by well-known South African personalities Marc Lottering, Corné Krige and Tol Ass Mo. Weather interfered with their plans to reveal the winner’s name whilst sky diving. Nonetheless, they raised R100 000 for charity and rugby legend Naas Botha even came out of early Twitter retirement in support of #SAsNo1.
George’s boerewors recipe is now used for Championship Boerewors as well as sold in all Shoprite, Checkers and Checkers Hyper stores where the equivalent of 8 220km boerewors – the distance between Cape Town and Mumbai (India) – was sold during the group’s previous financial year (ended 30 June 2015). Take a look at the video below to see what went down.
