Khayelitsha business people were exhilarated during the official launch of Small Enterprise Developing Agency office at Harare Square last Monday.

They described the event as a great initiative and big step to the future.

Yanga Mjingwana, one of the young business people who attended the event and the owner of Mjingwana’s Trading Company, described the new offices as a great asset to the community.

Mjingwana is in the construction business and has a tender installing water metres in residential area around Khayelitsha.

“As business people and as a community at large, we feel honoured and blessed to have these offices closer to us.

We believe these offices will assist us in supporting and promoting our businesses to develop and be able to sustain them,” he said, adding that they will not benefit only people from Khayelitsha but also the surrounding areas.

Mjingwana added that their objective is to develop Khayelitsha and make it one of the economic hubs in the province.

“This area is rich, with a lot of talent and skilled people, but they need institutions like SEDA to groom and nurture them.

“Hoping that by opening this office here, Khayelitsha will change for the better,” said Mjingwana and vowed to protect it from criminals as community.

SEDA Provincial manager Alex Qunta described the office as the first branch to officially open in Khayelitsha.

“Our aim is to bring services closer to the people. Now, there is no need for them to go to Cape Town or the Belleville offices to find out about their businesses. And we are planning to bring more services like Old Mutual, Masisizane Fund and others. ,” he said.

Qunta stated that they are in collaboration with the City. He urged the youth to utilise the services provided by SEDA.

Ward 98 Councillor Anele Gabuza reiterated Quta’s sentiments and urged the youth to open their own businesses.
