IN South Africa, small businesses make up the majority of all enterprises and contribute a third of South Africa’s GDP. They are the engine room of the economy.
Despite their valuable contribution to the country’s economy, small businesses face significant challenges. We look to the leaders and typically to the president to make be proactive fiscal decisions to support small businesses. It has become apparent that the ANC has a huge problem in that the president spends most of his time thinking up plans to stay in power and out of jail.
It’s up to the ANC to be brave enough to cut out the rot so that the body of South Africa can start to heal.
