UMzinyathi District Champion MEC Hlengiwe Mavimbela has officially launched “one home one garden” in Nquthu. The programme which is run by the Department of Agriculture in KZN will be rolled out to indigent households in the District. Speaking in Nquthu, MEC Mavimbela says this initiative will go a long way to help needy communities especially during this period where there is Covid-19.
A total of 1300 households across uMzinyathi District will receive production inputs such as water tanks, fertilizer, seeds and implements. One home one garden forms part of the Provincial government’s support to the vulnerable, most of whom have been at the receiving end of the economic crisis sparked by the Covid-19 pandemic.
