Ezase-Kasi bridges the gap between township trade and big business

Ezase-Kasi Business Fridays is an initiative that seeks to boost economic development in township spaces.

Ezase-Kasi host stakeholders from private sector in different township communities to experience their diverse range of goods and services on Friday afternoons.

Ezase-Kasi founder, Siyanda Mtulu, explains that various traders exist in the township, but are unable to access commercial spaces in affluent residential areas.

We do have have businesses. From construction, to spaza shops, tailors, doctors, law firms, fashion designers. They do exist in our townships. It's just that we aren't giving them the opportunities they deserve.

Siyanda Mtulu, founder of Ezase-Kasi

The provincial Ministry of Economic Opportunities has shown interest in the Ezase-Kasi concept and wants to give its support.

Ezase-Kasi has also been named an official brand partner in the National Development Plan Vision 2030.

Mtulu has encouraged local companies and corporate South Africa, and Capetonians in general, to look to the townships for their needs and help boost township economy
