Hibiscus calls on co-ops to register

2010-10-15 00:00

AN imbizo was held on Monday by the Hibiscus Coast Municipality at Port Shepstone’s Civic Centre to encourage local co-operatives to register their details with the municipality’s department of economic development.

The imbizo was well attended and community members helped to create a database that lists the details of some 50 functional co-operatives on the Hibiscus Coast.

The imbizo was part of a larger initiative by the Ugu District Municipality to help the small and informal business sector, with all six local municipalities hosting similar meetings.

Hibiscus Coast Mayor Nolwazi Shusha told participants what co-operatives are and how they can help develop local communities.

The council urges representatives of co-operatives that were represented at the meeting to register their details with the department of economic development by calling 039 688 2271.
