MBOMBELA- Deputy President, Paul Mashatile says the Red Tape Reduction Unit‘s intervention will deal with challenges small businesses face.

This was during the African National Congress Fundraising Gala Dinner on Tuesday at the Mbombela Stadium where he delivered a keynote address.

Mashatile told guests that through this team appointed by President Cyril Ramaphosa, all weaknesses will be dealt with in government.

“Many of our government departments have delay issues in awarding tenders, and not being paid on time. In particular, small businesses. When we do not pay small businesses on time, we are killing them.”
