Premier Makhura outlines plans for economy, employment
By Samona Naidu
Thokoza – Gauteng Premier David Makhura has announced that the provincial government will focus on boosting Gauteng’s economy and employment over the next five years.
“Gauteng is a province of endless opportunities and yet many people are still trapped in poverty, unemployment and inequality and are excluded from the mainstream economy. Many still live in townships far away from economic opportunities,” said the Premier.
He was delivering his first State of the Province Address in Thokoza on Friday.
