The Daily Maverick newspaper's annual South African of the Year Award was awarded to Dr. Imtiaz Sooliman, an Indian-origin philanthropist and founder of disaster relief group 'Gift Of The Givers.'

"This award came from South Africans who voted across cultures, faiths, and individuals who do not have any faith, but all of them were prepared to vote for me," Sooliman said, adding that "this symbolized that people in their souls support kindness."
