Black empowerment lobby group, Affirmative Action Group (AAG) held its 2017 national consultative assembly in Kadoma, with the leadership re-affirming the organisation’s principles of promoting wealth for the disadvantaged people.
AAG President, Chamu Chiwanza said most people have the capacity to make a breakthrough in their lives but they doubt their potential and capacity and instead think that they should first accumulate lots of investment capital before they can become money makers.
Chiwanza and the pressure groups’ Secretary for the Women’s Desk, Saliwe Njolomole told delegates brilliant ideas attract capital from those who have it.
According to a report presented by Chegutu West legislator, who is also the AAG chairman for Chegutu chapter, Cde Dexter Nduna, vast opportunities in the mining, textile and agriculture sectors lie untapped in Mashonaland West province, creating potential for business manoeuvres by members of the pressure group and other locals.
The AAG National Consultative Assembly was attended by representatives from the country’s regional chapters.
It was also meant to provide an update on the organisation’s activities from the different regional chapters and to reflect on programmes and plans of the pressure group.
