about us
Kawena Distributors (Pty) Ltd, formerly Manica Mineworkers Suppliers (Pty) Ltd commenced its business operations in 1987.

Kawena Distributors, has earned the trust of the Mozambicans through product and service delivery, stretching back almost 33 years, and is widely considered an institution in the country.

With the increasing demand for quality products and services, we have expanded outside the mine-workers industry to include all Mozambican and Zimbabwean nationals living in South Africa.

Over the years we have diversified, leveraging off the relationships we have forged with the various ministries, principal suppliers and our extensive infrastructural network within Mozambique and entered a partnership with OK Zimbabwe to help expand our reach.

We pride ourselves on supplying quality products at competitive prices, without the hassle of our customers having to transport the products to their families in Mozambique.

We understand that our customers are building for their future and therefore give our customers the freedom to collect goods anytime within a 3year period from the date of purchase.

Kawena Exchange

Kawena Exchange is the safe way for our customers to send value home.

Kawena identified the need for customers to have a safe, easy, and convenient method to send value home to their families.
