Entrepreneur turned opposition politician Herman Mashaba says an industrial revolution is needed to get South Africans back to work. Mashaba’s party, ActionSA, announced its economic policies earlier this month including a reform of labour legislation, changing the education system to produce pupils with skills for the workplace, and easing obstacles to doing business, arguing that red tape must be cut and that the engine room of SA’s future economy must lie with small businesses. The party proposes the establishment of business support hubs where SMMEs can receive immediate support with registration, tax compliance, and municipal electricity and water connections.
