Economic issues Vs Political manifestos: Fulfilling a promise to all South Africans

No room for Hope but Solutions

Published

on

The University of South Africa (UNISA) graduate school of Business Leadership was host to the Business Management Forum were the Democratic Alliance(DA), African Covenant(AC), African National Congress(ANC), and the African Transformation Movement( ATM) held a conventional event to unpack economic issues in the context of leadership.

Dr. Binganidzo Muchara also took time to shed light on dire South African issues such as unemployment, poverty, inequality and Political Parties promises, and he questioned which one of the political parties fall in the capable hands to be able to provide South African citizens solutions.

Now that the whole Country has witnessed the outcome of the 2019 elections, with the ANC still in power however this time around under new leadership, it is safe to say in the words of Dr. Binganidzo Muchara, ” We need more than political Manifestos”.

Taking a look at how economic issues have taken a tall on every system, and with increasing student protests he asked, ” Who has solutions to an education system that is skills driven, and not just a mere qualification bureau?”

” As a school of Business Leadership are we confidant about the contribution we put forward, do we do enough to contribute to South Africa’s education system training these leaders, including politicians with good standards”, Mucahra said.

He further said the challenge they face as an education system is that ” we have to design a syllabus that talks to a certain ethical partner that we believe in, people who can desert the party for sake of principles.”

“We have been doing a lot of compromising in South Africa, we have seen a lot of scandals, what South Africa needs is [leaders with vision], responsible leadership, we need accountable leaders, we need ethical leaders, fearless leaders who can make decisions.”

Supporting entrepreneurship ventures of SA varsities

Published

on

Entrepreneurship is growing within South Africa’s higher education spaces, from fresh ideas, innovations, to creative ventures set to contribute and stimulate the socio-economic growth in the region.

These ideas have been met by support from various industry experts, funding initiatives, and institutions transforming into innovative and entrepreneurial hubs that can spearhead socio-economic development.

This has been the culture around South African universities such as the University of the Western Cape (UWC),which in collaboration with WearSA, launched a retail clothing store – the first design and entrepreneurship incubator store of its kind in South Africa.

Recently we saw one of SA’s largest venture capital funds, the SA SME Fund, introducing students to entrepreneurial spaces, launching the first fund in Africa that commercialises ideas from tertiary institutions and gives access to funding and skills to CUT to promote entrepreneurs.

Today, we see the launch of the DUT retail leadership chair. This is a collaboration between the Durban University of Technology (DUT) and the Wholesale and Retail Sector Education and Training Authority (W&RSETA).

This initiative is also set to “serve as a critical conduit between industry and the university, in terms of constructive engagements, best practice in the industry both locally and internationally, in curriculum relevance and work integrated learning.”
