KwaThema – Xhasanani Business Forum gathered the elderly to entertain them as part of giving back to the community and uniting young people and the elderly on Tuesday.
The forum was established four months ago to bring unity and to create a network between small businesses in order to encourage people to support local businesses.
The forum consists of different businesses like catering, health screening, beadwork, construction and make-up artists.
Mandla Sibeko, the chairperson of the forum, says the community is embedded with many young people who have given themselves to nyaope. The forum hopes to create a safe place where young people can use their talents in order to generate an income.
Jony Mthimunye, a member of the forum, says that he is grateful to be a part of a forum that helps him forget about life’s challenges.
Although the forum has just been recently established, they have hosted three events aimed at contributing towards community development.

Gogos were entertained with music and participated by rendering musical and poetry items.
