Durban - Former president Jacob Zuma will be in Durban this week to receive two awards from controversial Durban-based organisations which have used violence to intimidate Indian and white-owned businesses, all in the name of “radical economic transformation”.
The National Funeral Practitioners Association of SA (Nafupa SA), Delangokubona SA Business Forum and Unemployed People’s Trust held a press briefing on Sunday.
Nafupa SA president Muzi Hlengwa said 17 like-minded organisations had agreed to honour Zuma for the “sterling work he did while he was the president”.
Hlengwa said Zuma would receive achievement and bravery awards during a gala dinner at the Olive Convention Centre where guests had been asked to dress formally in navy and blue.
“It is under Jacob Zuma that we got this 30% for black entrepreneurs. Today there is no road construction that can take place in your areas without black companies being involved, which is something we treasure most,” said Hlengwa.
