South African singer and songwriter Simphiwe Dana is not the very least pleased with the attitude of the government towards smaller businesses in that country.
He is apparently fed up with the lack of support for the smaller businesses with all the focus being put into businesses that are well established and strong enough.
This is an African bane that the support small business operators so need do not come for them and this accounts to the collapse of businesses every minute on the continent.
If you do not know anybody in a high place, you are better of not starting a business for which you’ll need support to grow.
Simphiwe Dana registered her displeasure at the situation on her Twitter page where she lamented the fact that a small business owner needing the support of the government would have to work for the big companies out there.
“We have businesses ourselves. However small. But to get assistance from government we have to work for big business. And we know the roots/ origins of these big businesses,” Simphiwe Dana wrote.
It is time African leaders shift the focus from concentrating on the bigger business to supporting smaller businesses struggling for survival.
When this is done, there’ll be more companies/businesses and that will translate into jobs to ease the unemployment situation in our countries.
