Themba Mliswa forms own empowerment group

The newly formed ZEEC, which is led by Mr Themba Mliswa, has more than 15 indigenisation groups under its wing.

Mr Mliswa said the organisation is expected to assist government’s indigenisation policy by ensuring that locals get access to funding.

“We hope this will enable everyone to get access to the shares,” said Mr Mliswa.

ZEEC Secretary General, Mr Privellage Gwiba said the organisation is also committed to assist indigenous Zimbabweans in venturing into mainstream business activities.

“This is critical and we hope everyone will also benefit in the future,” he said.

ZEEC, whose membership includes youths, war veterans, ex-detainees, students, disabled persons and widows, among others, has also finalised indigenisation structures in the country’s  provinces to ensure that the indigenisation policy is a success.
