​Farm Co-ownership Pilot Project in KZN

One of the first pilot projects that will see workers and farm owners become co-owners of a farming enterprise as part of government's 50/50 land policy was officially launched in KwaZulu-Natal.

The pilot project was unveiled at the Westcliffe Farm near Greytown outside Pietermaritzburg.

Former owner Andrew Braithwaite‚ who will now be co-owning a new farm called Khamanzi Farming Project‚ says land is a very emotional topic in South Africa “and we’ve been shown how not to deal with it by our northern neighbour” - in reference to Zimbabwe’s chaotic land reform system.

Business Schools Urged to Promote CSR Beyond Legal and Profit Motives

"Most business schools do not equip potential leaders with the awareness and tools to internalise the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR). In many instances, these business schools will address CSR in relation to good corporate governance and as an opportunity to increase profit margins."
