UMZIMVUBU LOCAL MUNICIPALITY DIRECTS AGRICULTURAL INVESTMENT TOWARDS WOOLGROWERS IN KWABHACA AND EMAXESIBENI.
Subsistence woolgrowers across Umzimvubu Local Municipality will on the 18th October 2023, receive new wool pressers to value of 1 million rand. This equipment is expected to improve the livelihood of farmers in the area who previously farmed for subsistence purposes only.
“This is another investment opportunity that we believe will create a viable platform for SMMEs to trade and ultimately create employment opportunities for our people”, said Umzimvubu Mayor Cllr Zukiswa Ndevu.
The Municipality has identified at least 28 beneficiaries (one from each ward), for the ceremonial handover to be conducted at Sophia Park in KwaBhaca. The programme will commence at 9:00 am.
Media Houses are invited to join the Mayor for the handover ceremony. Kindly direct all RSVPs to Ms Nandipha Xangayi on Xangayi.Nandipha@umzimvubu.gov.za
