This week on The Business Buzz, We explore issues around unemployment in South Africa. We look at local projects, initiatives and individuals that are successfully creating opportunities for employment and skills development in their communities.

Ruth Phume, the Station Manager of Tshwane TV, tells us about an exciting innovative initiative by Thabo Shole-Mashao and Tshwane TV called “Project Thola Umsebenzi”.The initiative is aimed at reducing unemployment and providing employment opportunities to people in townships – who often do not have the money or resources to actively look for work or get themselves to interviews.

“In our Business Wrap”, Financial Advisor Ken Swettenham gives us a recap of this week’s Business, Finance and Economic news.

We unveil the second mentor of “The Mentorship Match-Up”, Dr Malebo Maponyane.

Our “Rant’ n Rave” for the week is a female electrical engineer who tells us what she loves and hates about her job.

To end off the show, we unpack the term ‘derivatives’ in our ‘’Ever Wondered’ segment.
