CPA believes in unity to achieve more The beneficiaries of the Mamphodo Mishasha Begwa Communal Property Association (MMB CPA) can benefit from job creation on the CPA’s farm later this year. This information emerged during the distribution of food parcels for the festive season and new year to beneficiaries. “We will cultivate cash crops, such as spinach, cabbages, toma­ toes, butternuts and more,” said the deputy secretary, Vho-Dolly Ralubuvhi. “We will also supply and make these products available to mem­ bers of the public and the fresh produce market.” The deputy chairperson, Mr Samuel Ramurembiwa, made a

call for unity and cooperation among the beneficiaries. Ramurembiwa is part of the newly elected committee in the CPA who strongly believes that the committee must stand united and work hand in glove with the beneficiaries. “We understand that we don’t have to undermine or ignore the beneficiaries’ input in making decisions on the farm,” he said. Beneficiaries were also given land orientation, so that they may get to know about their land. At the moment, the MMB CPA raises operational funds through the leasing of land to cattle owners who need pastures for their livestock, game farming and house rentals.

“Things are starting to look brighter now, and once we have secured funding, we will initiate projects that will be part of job creation.” One of the beneficiaries, Ms Mercy Thwalima, said that she was happy now that the CPA was seemingly taking a new direction with the new committee. “All that we want is job creation, so our children could have some employment,” she said. “When things are finally on track and the farm starts gen­ erating enough money from its projects, then the introduction of a bursary scheme will be necessary. This bursary scheme will assist the youths to further their studies.”
