British entrepreneur Richard Branson says that black economic empowerment is also a way of eradicating poverty and unemployment; Branson made the comment while at Soweto’s Virgin Active gym launch at the weekend.
He feels that more needs to be done to help support upcoming entrepreneurs and existing ones. His main concern was SA’s high unemployment figures and rampant poverty.
Branson wishes to see everyone being able to support themselves without any hassles. He dislikes seeing people struggle for basic necessities like food.
