MANDENI Local Municipality Mayor Sphesihle Zulu engaged in fruitful discussions with Finnish ambassador to South Africa Kari Alanko during his visit to Isithebe on Thursday, November 28.

The core focus of the meeting was to discuss plans to revitalise Isithebe Industrial Area for the greater benefit of the people of Mandeni and surrounding areas.

Speaking at the meeting, Zulu highlighted the significance of inclusive investments where locals will not only benefit through employment opportunities but through being contributors during construction phases, maintenance, and day-to-day operations of the firms. Adding to that, Zulu emphasised the importance of good working relations between big corporations, the municipality, and the community at large.

“We need to have a project that will assist all people who want to secure business contracts at Isithebe.

“This should not target big businesses, it should target, for example, people who want to cut grass, paint, and do day-to-day maintenance of business premises at Isithebe.

“We need to find a way to capacitate them, teach them about the processes that need to be followed in order to secure business deals. Let’s create room for small businesses to benefit from Isithebe Industrial Area,” said Zulu.
