South Africa’s Labour Minister, Mildred Oliphant is to deliver a keynote address when she visits the township of Ngwelezane on the outskirts of Empangeni, in KwaZulu-Natal.

The visit by Oliphant follows an outcry from the Ngwelezane community about a lack of economic opportunities.

The key message from the Minister is to express the government’s readiness to assist to meet the National Development Plan’s 2030 goals.
