THE Deputy Minister of Trade Industry and Competition Nomalungelo Gina hailed a KwaZulu-Natal company as a perfect example of what the government and the private sector can achieve if they work together for a common purpose. Gina visited the woman-owned Msinga Clothing Factory, which is based in Keate’s Drift in Msinga.

Lelly Mntungwa is the owner of the factory which is a community organisation that aims to sharpen the skills of unemployed residents by providing them with opportunities.

Mntungwa has employed 260 workers working on site so far.
