Four years after the presidential projects started in Muyexe village, Giyani, a lot more still needs to be done to further improve the living conditions of the community.
This was evident during President Jacob Zuma’s recent visit, to assess the progress made since the village was declared a pilot project under the Comprehensive Rural Development Programme. Accompanied by various ministers and MEC’s, the president visited several smaller projects in the village and interacted with projects’ owners, including a perfume making project, where he bought seven bottles of perfume. He asked his team to help market the project so it could grow bigger. At the Macena Gardening project, the president was met with water challenges, which the owners said was hindering their progress. Zuma told the farmers that there was a pipeline from Nsami dam that was heading to the village. “We expect that pipeline to address all the issues with regard to water,” he said.
Meanwhile Hosi Muyexe (Ben Maluleke) asked the president to keep his end of his promise and address the remaining challenges in the village.
