About David Makhura

The Gauteng Premier has issued a challenge to the “space billionaires” to take South African cannabis into orbit. Makhura’s twitter challenge is cute, but the real news story is how the Premier is positioning the Province to take the lead in the growing and processing of cannabis at an industrial scale. He visited the Vaal Triangle this month pledging that cannabis would be a “clean and green” way of revitalising South Africa’s industrial heartland in the wake of Covid-19.
