Maphumulo Local Municipality created a room for SMMEs under this municipality to thrive when they introduced four electrification projects within the precinct of businesses as well as residential areas.
Maphumulo is home to mostly indigent people who rely on starting small businesses to make end meets. Electricity will go a long way in ensuring that such businesses get a much needed facelift.
Electricity was one of the first priorities on the Maphumulo Municipality Integrated Development Plan since the new council came into office. These electrification projects were introduced on 16 January 2018 by Her Worship the Mayor Zibuyisile Khuzwayo-Dlamini.
These projects will cover Zagqayini, Shikishi, Wolongo, Mvozane, Mansomini, Snamfini and Mzulwini area. The aforementioned projects will go on for the duration of five months and will bring job opportunities as well as benefit local SMMEs in Maphumulo area.
The Mayor also introduced the constructors to the community and urged the community to give them full cooperation, time and patience needed in order to complete the project with ease. The projects have already started.
