Swazi Observer - - BUSINESS - By Ma­jaha Nkonyane

IN a bid to see more busi­nesses op­er­at­ing in the in­dus­trial cap­i­tal of Eswa­tini Matsapha, Mayor Sand­lane Zwane has an­nounced that they have plans to re­lo­cate some busi­nesses in or­der to open space for new busi­nesses.

Speak­ing dur­ing the open­ing of Mathangeni OK Foods, Zwane said as Matsapha they have a vi­sion to see devel­op­ment tak­ing place within Matsapha and they are plan­ning to re­lo­cate some busi­nesses which will help make a way for new busi­nesses in the area.

Zwane made an ex­am­ple of Asian oper­ated car deal­ers, where some of them are op­er­at­ing on places where other busi­nesses that could add bet­ter value to Matsapha could be. Zwane also said they were look­ing to host busi­nesses like lodges, which are meant to fur­ther boost the coun­try’s tourism. The mayor sternly ad­vised OK Foods staff on not op­er­at­ing their busi­nesses in an­other busi­ness as this pro­moted cor­rup­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to Zwane, the coun­try was strug­gling a lot with cor­rup­tion and this needed to be cor­rected soon as it was de­lay­ing a lot of the coun­try’s progress.

In ad­di­tion Zwane said the coun­try needs more in­vestors as it is a fer­tile en­vi­ron­ment that is ready to host busi­nesses. “Eswa­tini is a vir­gin and needs in­vestors to help build the econ­omy, Matsapha is more than ready to host in­vestors as we have plans to im­prove the place to a lu­cra­tive en­vi­ron­ment beam­ing with busi­nesses,” he said.
