THE Minister of Small Business and Development, Lindiwe Zulu, encouraged co-operatives to contribute to the economy when she visited Harding recently.
Zulu was accompanied by the chairperson of Portfolio Committee on Small Businesses and Development, Ruth Bengu, and the Umuziwabantu mayor, Dixie Nciki to capacitate co-ops.

Zulu said she is not happy to see co-operatives formed by government instead of people forming co-ops with support from government.
“People must form co-operatives to grow the local economy and my office will support them financially.”

Nciki said co-operatives will be included in the municipality’s 2017 to 2021 integrated development plan.

Challenges that were raised by co-operatives included the lack of government funding for them. - Supplied.
