On 11 January 2022, a delegation from the Department Economic Development, Environment Conservation and Tourism (DEDECT) and the North West Development Corporation (NWDC ) Board of Directors, led by MEC Kenetswe Mosenogi and HOD Mr Lufuno Tshikovhi, visited a number of NWDC’s industrial and retail properties in Bodirelo, Mogwase and Tlhabane.

The aim of the visit was to assess the NWDC’s properties in the Bojanala Region and to engage with some of the tenants regarding their businesses and challenges experienced.

The delegation from DEDECT was joined by NWDC Board Chairperson Mr Kenneth Konopi, NWDC Board Finance and Investment Sub Committee Chairperson Ms Sharon Maleka, NWDC CEO Mr Tshepo Phetla, NWDC Acting CFO Mr Radichaba Malapane, and executive managers of the NWDC from SEZ, Properties and Corporate Services.

In the Bodirelo Industrial area, the delegation visited the workshop of Beake Engineering Solutions, viewing their operations and engaging with Beake’s directors regarding their challenges. HOD Tshikovhi highlighted the importance of improving the security in the Bodirelo industrial park, stating that SMMEs such as Beake are drivers of job creation. NWDC Board Chair Konopi expressed his pride in this innovative company and assured them that NWDC’s doors are open to engage them on their challenges and added that proper electrical supply is a priority.

Thereafter, the delegation visited the Mogwase Shopping Complex and the Motortown Industrial Park in Tlhabane. At the Motortown, MEC Mosenogi engaged with tenants and NWDC tenant coordinators regarding challenges they are facing. MEC Mosenogi encouraged them to join hands to come up with solutions to the challenges they are facing, such as vandalism and theft.

The delegation acknowledged the importance of NWDC’s properties in growing the provincial economy and job creation, as most tenants employ a number of staff. As said by NWDC Board Chair Konopi: “NWDC should be creating an environment that supports businesses to operate”.

MEC Mosenogi concluded the site tour stating that the Department is eager to receive action plans from the NWDC that will address challenges and improve the state of its properties to the benefit of its tenants and the local economies they are supporting. In closing, NWDC CEO Tshepo Phetla, remarked: “The NWDC is committed to ensuring a speedy resolution to the challenges identified, and we thank our Shareholder for the support demonstrated towards the revitalisation of the province’s property portfolio.”

A Christmas message by the NWDC CEO, Tshepo Phetla

If you are fortunate enough to be reading this message, you have much to celebrate. By grace and mercy you were carried through the second year of a global pandemic.

For most of us the year 2021 turned out to be a challenging year, and surely not exactly what we were hoping for, coming out of the historic and unprecedented 2020.

Yet, we find ourselves in December of 2021, which in itself, is reason for reflection and celebration.

Let us reflect on the tenacity that lies in connectivity to others. Let us reflect on the strength of the collective human spirit and the value of carrying each other; because frankly, not one of us arrived at this point on our own. Let us celebrate God’s grace and protection during the year that was.

As we wind down to spend time with friends and family, I wish you a blessed and peaceful festive season. May you use the opportunity to express your appreciation and care towards your loved ones, colleagues, neighbours, and health care workers, not forgetting the less fortunate among us.

Please be safe on the roads, and act responsibly in public spaces and at gatherings, observing Covid-19 prevention protocols.

We look forward to ringing in the New Year, already beckoning with new opportunities and that unfading light called Hope.

Tshepo Phetla
Chief Executive Officer


South Africa will join the rest of the world in commemorating International Anti-Corruption Day on 9 December 2021 under the theme “Corruption-free future starts today, it starts with me”.

International Anti-Corruption Day is commemorated annually in recognition of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, which was signed in Mexico in 2003. South Africa is one of the signatories to the Convention and ratified it in 2004.

This day is commemorated annually to raise awareness about the cost and negative effects of corruption as well as to find ways to eliminate it. In South Africa, the fight against corruption is one of the major priorities of government. Corruption in both the private and public sector has a detrimental effect on government’s effort to deliver effective services to the people.

The Office of the Public Service Commission will host a virtual event as follows:

 

Date: 09 December 2021

On 30 November 2021, NWDC participated in the inaugural Gender Equality & Disability Roundtable event hosted by the TEMO Foundation in partnership with Sun International and DEDECT.

TEMO Foundation initiated the Gender Equality Roundtable event as a multi-sector convergence platform that brings roleplayers of all genders together for the purpose of reflecting on the gender equality status quo and exploring viable solutions and actions for an accelerated realisation of gender equality at the local level.

The GE 21 Roundtable’s programme featured panellists from key institutions who are sharing their views on the current state of gender and disability equality.

DEDECT, NWDC and other entities were among the participants and exhibitors.

Current and former board members of the NWDC were also in attendance, including Ms Sharon Maleka, Ms Nkamo Phadu-More and Ms Ntombi Koloti, the latter served as the programme director for the day’s discussions.
