Our History

Our History

Kichose comes out of an indomitable spirit of determination.

Our Founder and CEO, Pardon Mabunda recounts the time he spent working for the very successful construction and property development family business alongside his father, Wonderful Mabunda. However, he chose not to ride on his father’s success and rest in the prospect of one day taking the reigns over from his father. Instead he felt he had a greater contribution to make in the world. He was determined to build a company in his own right that would not only create wealth but make a positive impact in society.

With nothing more than these ideals and his computer technical skills he set out at the tender age of 24, to start his own company. Initially going from door to door offering his services and repairing his customers’ computers. It was not easy. There were days when there wouldn’t be “takers” and times when work was done but was not paid for.  

It wasn’t until he learnt that, it was not his perception but his customers’ perception of value, which mattered, that his fortunes turned. Something that continues to drive how he conducts his business today. He repackaged his offering accordingly and the rest as they say is now history.
