More than 300 rural community members of the Mamone royal family in Sekhukhune, Limpopo, will celebrate their achievements after a skills empowerment drive by the Department of Labour.

The R500000 project, funded by Labour Minister Membathisi Mdladlana last year, forms part of the government's job creation and poverty alleviation programme, departmental spokesman Joe Maila said yesterday.

The project has benefited about 390 people, mainly women, young people and the disabled.

On Saturday Mdladlana and Sekhukhune mayor Dickson Masemola will be among the guests of Chief Mampuru Sekwati as the Mamone tribal authority celebrates the achievements.

"The trainees were taught marketing, management, pottery, beading, field fertilisation and how to make clothing." - Selby Makgotho
