Unisa’s School of Business Leadership reached out to us, as they wanted to help Vusi. They wanted to connect Vusi to their network of small-scale farmers and entrepreneurs from around the country.

Tomorrow (Friday), the School will host a Rural and Urban Market Day at its Midrand Campus. This market day is part of the school’s efforts to reach out to communities whose livelihoods have been disrupted by Covid-19.

Context to attacks on truck drivers

26 November 2020 7:43 AM

Local truckers continue to argue for the industry to not employ foreign nationals, raising fears of rising, social media-fuelled xenophobic sentiment. The country has seen a spate of violence on trucks where at least 29 of them were targeted in the past week.

The All Truck Drivers Forum say foreign nationals should not be hired to drive trucks in the country, while some associations say the recent attacks are just pure criminal. In 2018 more than 200 non-nationals were killed in the SA road freight industry, Human Rights Commission chair Angie Makwetla told an inquiry into the truck violence.

Bongani speaks to Loren Landau, Research Professor at the African Centre for Migration and Society at Wits University.
