Agriculture celebrates Mandela Day


Agriculture’s role in shaping the nation post covid-19 was discussed at a live Food For Mzansi Power Talk hosted by journalists Dawn Noemdoe and Duncan Masiwa.

Guests included the managing director of the VKB Group, Koos Janse Van Rensburg, Keneilwe Nailana from Standard Bank and Rev. Earl Richards from the Step-up Foundation in the Northern Cape.
