A Western Cape female farmer, Tenjiwe Kaba, has been selected as one of the country’s top agri-entrepreneurs.

Kaba was named as one of the winners in the Female Entrepreneur Awards, which were held in Durban on Thursday.

Last week, Kaba won the substance producer category in the Western Cape leg of the awards. She leads Moyo We Khaya, a community garden in Khayelitsha tended by women farming with vegetables.

The Female Entrepreneur Awards is a partnership between the National Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

Bronwynne Jooste said “Minister Winde has congratulated Tenjiwe and said she is a real ambassador for the Western Cape Agricultural sector.

Jooste mentioned that “she is playing an important role in food security and Minister Winde is pleased with her work and wishes her well with her role”
