Ms Gumede was one of the families and businesses who helplessly watched their properties being washed away by the disastrous floods earlier this year, which led to the South African Government declaring a state of national disaster on 18 April 2022.

Before the floods struck Azowel Projects, it had forty tunnels producing tomatoes and green peppers with an annual turnover of R1.6 million, employing 32 people.

During her visits and while providing some relief to families affected by the floods, Deputy Minister Bogopane-Zulu was told of the challenges that were a result of the crisis.

In response to these, Deputy Minister, in partnership with MTN SA Foundation, will be handing over a cheque to Azowel Project.
