What business would you like to see?
Like many small cities and towns across South Africa, Grahamstown is locked in a vicious cycle of high unemployment, especially of young people and women. Lindani Donyeli asked residents what businesses they’d like to see in town.
UNEMPLOYED A chicken factory. UNEMPLOYED Pottery to make mugs and plates. UNEMPLOYED It doesn’t matter. Some get employed by night [and] you never know what’s going on. UNEMPLOYED Anything to stop crime in the communities. UNEMPLOYED There should be a college to give people skills. UNEMPLOYED People should get land so that they can produce.
