President Jacob Zuma's home town of Nkandla is being given a facelift. A shopping complex is under construction, while a mall is also on the cards.

The Department of Higher Education has also injected millions of rand into a college under construction.

Nkandla mayor Thamsanqa Ntuli says the area is starting to attract businesses.

“The reason for this kind of development you see in town, the shops and the complex is about to be completed ... which has opened jobs for the local community. The community will also benefit since they will no longer travel long distance when doing shopping, because they will now get all their shopping needs in the shopping complex. [We hope to] attract  investors to come to Nkandla and ourselves as the municipality we are [working] very hard to ensure [that] we attract more [investors],” explains Ntuli.
