The minister was in the province on Thursday to engage with various agricultural stakeholders, many of whom shared how their annual production had now gone to waste while left with millions and millions worth of debt and damage. 

Minister Didiza said the committee would, among other things, look at how to clear infrastructure challenges so that farmers get the surviving produce out as soon as possible.


“That steering committee, which is going to be led by our provincial department of agriculture, working with out PSSC on land reform and rural development, will also have to make sure on the infrastructure is built.

“I think everyone, without exception, was saying the road infrastructure, particularly to the farms, is critical.”
