About the #MovedByYou campaign
As a country, South Africans have continued to persevere through some incredibly tough times. In spite of the ongoing challenges posed by Covid-19, business shutdowns, gender-based violence, protests and civil unrest, the South African spirit of perseverance and innovation still prevails.
The Gautrain salutes all South Africans for their continued resilience and fortitude.
The Gautrain’s #MovedByYou campaign is not just a reminder of our resilience as a nation, but it is also a message of hope and encouragement to South Africans to keep moving, no matter what the circumstances are.
“It is very important for us to celebrate South Africans, especially during these difficult times, and to remind all South Africans of what may be possible when we harness our collective strength and work together as a nation. This is essentially the messaging we want to convey,” says Kesagee Nayager, marketing and communications executive at the Bombela Concession Company.
Even in times of great difficulty, the Gautrain has continued to keep people on the move. Its priority is providing an integrated transport service that is safe and reliable.
Through the #MovedByYou campaign, the Gautrain celebrates each and every South African for their tenacity, courage and never-say-die spirit. Nayager notes that the campaign’s underlying message is that the
Gautrain keeps going because its customers never stop moving, no matter what challenges come their way.
In a country often beset by trouble, South Africa’s people continue to raise the bar and excel on the local and international stages. These include our everyday heroes and heroines who work tirelessly for positive change. The Gautrain salutes you.
