FIVE thou­sand small busi­nesses can be es­tab­lished and it will cre­ate and ma­ture 5 000 business peo­ple/youth, of which an­other 10 000 or more jobs will be cre­ated. This if the gov­er­ment can set aside R1.5 bil­lion to up­lift SMEs and cre­ate skills de­vel­op­ment projects across SA.

Also, Gov­ern­ment se­ri­ously needs to look into up­lift­ing ru­ral ar­eas eco­nom­i­cally and cre­at­ing jobs with in­cen­tives/re­bates to fac­to­ries.

There’s so much money be­ing wasted and stolen and I am sure this R1.5bn would go a long long way to help­ing young en­trepreneurs. Rusten­burg IT WOULD be in­ter­est­ing to know if Sars fol­lowed up on how Zuma’s bond was be­ing paid, and if it is be­ing paid from his own bank ac­count or some­one else’s ac­count or per­haps all al­ready paid off !
