The hard work and achievements of the small business community in South Africa were in the spotlight when the winners of the 2015 South African Small Business Awards were announced on 5 November 2015 at a breakfast at Montecasino in Fourways, Johannesburg.The awards, hosted by the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) and sponsored by Adams & Adams, First National Bank and Vodacom, paid tribute to the contribution that small businesses made in creating employment and building communities. They represented various industries throughout the country.Successful small businesses promote the outcomes of the country’s National Development Plan. It aims to create decent employment through inclusive economic growth, so creating a better South Africa, a better Africa, and a better world.The NSBC, established in 2007, is a non-profit membership organisation and the driving force fuelling small business growth. It was set up to foster the sustainability and growth of the SME sector, driving job creation, alleviating unemployment and nurturing the country’s entrepreneurial spirit. The chamber has a membership of more than 87 000 small- and medium-sized enterprises and 50 big brands as national partners.Mike Anderson, founder and chief executive officer of the NSBC, gives a motivational speech.(Image: National Small Business Chamber)Mike Anderson, the founder and chief executive officer of the NSBC, said in a statement that being recognised as a champion business further validated the award winners’ reputation for quality and provided opportunities for further growth. “While our economy struggles to reach its full potential, small businesses like the 2015 award winners act as shining examples of how innovation, perseverance and commitment can have a big impact,” he said.“Though times can be tough, this year’s winners have proven they can be too.

As protesters turned violent over amended motor vehicles Act, the Bhubaneswar-Cuttack Police Commissionerate launched an awareness campaign. The people and police had fought a pitched battle over the enforcement of the Act on September 7.The protesters’ resentment was primarily against steep penalties. The information regarding the amended rules will be spread through loudspeakers attached to a four-wheeler with photographs and posters displayed on it, DCP (Traffic) Sagarika Nath told the media.On the other hand, the demonstrators also demanded unconditional release of the people who were arrested following a clash with police in Bhubaneswar on September 7. Two days after the authorities faced opposition from the people, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had given three months to people to get their papers ready.The Police Commissionerate on September 10 distributed helmets to motorists who were penalised. They also distributed ‘Thank You’ notes to motorists who were following traffic rules.Meanwhile, the Transport Department offices have been witnessing a huge rush of people to apply for and renew driving licences and updating vehicle documents. The department’s offices across the State are also open on holidays to cope with the rush.State Transport Secretary G. Srinivas, who went on a surprise visit to a Regional Transport Office on September 11, said that the State government will decide about reducing the penalty rates after studying notifications issued by other States that had implemented the amended Act.During the window period of three months for people to prepare the papers, the police are focusing on drunken driving, use of mobile phones while driving, driving on the wrong side of roads, triple riding and non-usage of helmets and seat belts.
