Kwazulu Natal has been receiving negative press in the past two months. But there are a number of positive developments that are being overlooked. One of them is the Eyesizwe Contractor Development Programme in the mega-billion public sector construction landscape.

Hailed as the “game changer”, the programme aims to empower emergent firms through capacity building and skills development, according to the KZN MEC for Human ­Settlements and Public Works, ­Ravigasen Pillay.

The initiative’s rationale is that, when the small contractor gets exposed to major construction projects, they get a chance to move up the CIDB grading. This enables them to also ­tender for multi-million rand projects in future.

The department’s spokesperson, Mbulelo Baloyi says he is encouraged that big contractors support the scheme.

  1. This empowerment is great thank u so much disadvantaged women like me would really benefit thank u

  2. We are a start up construction company named Jeleza 2 Contractors who are wishing to be uplifted as we only have a Grade 1GB and 1CE.
    The owners and management of the above mentioned company are hands on and have a vast experience in construction.
    We wish to engage and participate in the programmes so our company can also grow in the CIDB Grading and levels.

    With Kind Regards.
