The Malamulele branch of the Congress of Traditional Leaders of South Africa has hailed a donation from the Collins Chabane Chamber of Business.
At the 6th Anniversary celebrations CCCB ‘s breakfast held at Malamulele Community hall on Friday, the chamber announced that it was donating an amount of R10 000 to the traditional leaders under the umbrella of Contralesa who are going on a holiday retreat to the Kruger National Park for three days in October.
Making the announcement, the chamber’s deputy president Thomas Chauke said it had come to light that the traditional leaders under Contralesa are going to the Kruger to get some rest.
“We have decided to make this donation because traditionally we are supposed to give something to traditional leaders and we have decided to make the donation so that they enjoy themselves,” said Malamulele branch secretary Hosi Bohani Shigamani.
Business mogul Vanroy Baloyi pledged the use of his bus to ferry traditional leaders to Kruger on the day of the trip.
He said it was always appreciated that the business community ploughs back, not only to traditional leaders but to the community in general.
The event was addressed by Collins Chabane Local Municipality councilor Elvis Lebea on behalf of the mayor Shadrack Maluleke.
At the event traditional leaders raised some misgivings about the attainment of tenders at the municipality. Van Roy Baloyi raised the issue and urged the municipality to look at the problems faced by local contractors.
Another businessman Cedrick Yingwani also complained about the banks ‘reluctance to fund businessmen who have secured tenders.
He said businessmen who are holding appointment letters should not struggle to secure funding.
A representative of the FNB urged traditional leaders and the government to come closer to the bank in order to bridge the gap.
He said the bank was always ready to come to meetings and address how they operate but usually they are not invited.
