Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma's commitment to co-operatives was well received by the SA National Civic Organisation on Thursday.

Sanco leader Ruth Bhengu said: "The president is involving the communities in their own development which is what co-operatives are all about." 

She was speaking after President Jacob Zuma delivered his third State of the Nation address.

Zuma said: "We will continue to provide financial and non-financial support to small, medium, and micro enterprises (SMMEs), small scale agriculture as well as co-operatives.

"The National Youth Development Agency is in discussion with state organs and the private sector to mainstream youth development in public sector programmes and to promote youth enterprises and co-operatives," he added.

Sanco is part of the ruling alliance with the ANC, the Congress of SA Trade Unions and the SA Communist Party.

    Yes all you have to do is go murder a white farmer and his family and you will get a free farm in the future.
