Summer Different emboldens Sekhukhune entrepreneurs

Jane Furse – Saturday 12 December 2020 is a glorious day for the Sekhukhune District’s entrepreneurs. This assertion was shared by participants representing more than 50 SMMEs as they were given a lift of boldness during the South African Tourism’s Summer Different roadshow workshop at Zai O.A.T Lodge in Jane Furse. One of the hidden gems of the District that got a shine from the SA Tourism spotlight was the Bapedi Ancestral Flower, an indigenous yellow arum lily endemic to Mohlake on the summit of Leolo mountain about 30 km outside Jane Furse town.

A rare opportunity to unearth this spectacular part of the country emerged during an interactive session impeccably delivered by Mr Andile Khumalo themed “How to win”. The overarching theme and take home message was to entrepreneurs in attendance to quit the minimalistic thinking, and rather go mega in mind set, skills and activity. The Bapedi Ancestral Flower pounced as an example of an authentic idea with a potential to be sold to local hotels, guest houses and tourism establishments to harness the biodiversity knowledge and cultural esteem of the people of Sekhukhune of Sekhukhune – thus integrating the District’s heritage into lifestyle and corporate taste across the local tourism sector.

Amongst fire-powered speakers and guests representative of the Executive Mayor of Sekhukhune District MMC Lauraine Manganeng, Mr Collins Malekana of Sekhukhune Office of Limpopo Tourism Agency, Mr Mokgoma Nkopodi of Government Communication and Information System (GCIS), Mr Themba Khumalo the Chief Marketing Officer of SA Tourism and Altaaf Kazi who thanked local entrepreneurs and introduced them to the Sho’t Left tutorial and Google SMME offering through videos, and the programme was adeptly directed by Dr Maylene Broderick.

Speaking on behalf of the Executive Mayor of Sekhukhune District MMC Manganeng said for most of the year 2020, South African’s movements have been restricted and the #Summer Different campaign coming to Sekhukhune is highly embraced as a bold step to economic recovery, and most importantly a breakthrough that embolden the people of Sekhukhune to go out and safely enjoy attractions within their District, their country and summer, differently.

“We are pleased to join SA Tourism in this effort to encourage people to go out and discover their country and join the nation-wide journey to celebrate South Africa’s rich and diverse landscape this summer. Sekhukhuneland is ready to offer you the friendliest royal welcome” concluded Manganeng
