Fokus: The team looks at how townships are combatting unemployment

Published on

Fokus’ Wednesday night episode will see the team showcasing the innovative ways of creating employment amid the pandemic, which have helped people earn a living during lockdown.

Fokus’ upcoming episode, which airs on SABC 2 tonight, 12 August 2020, will profile Upcycle, a company which was created during the nationwide lockdown to provide employment to a number of people. The company produces face masks, which are now mandatory to wear in public. With just over ten employees, Upcycle has been able to produce thousands of masks to sell to local customers, creating a steady source of income for the company.

The episode will also look at the sewage issue that appears to be an ongoing crisis in Kimberley, resulting in a sanitation problem for surrounding residents. The team will also explore the impact of having a sewage problem during the pandemic, further probing how the municipality is planning on addressing the matter.

Watch the preview of the upcoming episode of Fokus below.
