LAST week the KZN government, led by the Premier Senzo Mchunuu and MECs gathered in Cwaka, Msinga for the launch of the second Inkululeko Development Project and Poverty Eradication Master Plan for the development of rural areas into thriving towns with a progressive agricultural sector.
Departments focused on developing uMzinyathi District, one of the poorest in the province, into a success.

MEC for agriculture, Cyril Xaba at the sod-turning ceremony for a new goat’s abattoir at Mphelankani said: “Msinga must be the hub of goat meat in the province and possibly the country. Chevon (goat meat) must be available in every butchery and store in the province and the country. This can only be done by you, the people of Msinga and with our support you can move Msinga forward.”

KZN Dard MEC Xaba realised the potential of Msinga through goats as a thriving commodity in his new strategy of agrarian reform and transformation. On 30 January Msinga experienced a groundbreaking event when the department held a goat’s expo and goat-meat cook-off competition to open doors for the community of Msinga to participate in the agricultural economy.

The department and Agri-business Development Agency is building a goat’s abattoir with the capacity of accommodating cattle and other livestock. These are some of the interventions the department is using to ensure food security, participation in the agricultural economy and the mitigation of the effects of drought in KZN.

Msinga must be the hub of goat meat in the province and
possibly the country. Chevon (goat meat) must be available in every butchery and store in the province and the country. This can only be done by you, the people of Msinga and with our support you can move Msinga forward
