Premier Winde says Port of Cape Town’s failure to create jobs slowing down economy

Western Cape Premier Alan Winde says the Port of Cape Town is one of the worst-run ports in the world.

This comes after the Democratic Alliance visited the port on Thursday to conduct an inquiry about its inefficiency and underperformance.

Premier Winde said the port has the potential to contribute over R6 billion to the country’s GDP.

According to Winde, Western Cape’s peak table grape and fruit exports were recently delayed by up to three weeks.

“This port would enable another R1.2 billion in taxes if we found those efficiencies. Those taxes could be spent on teachers and doctors. This port could enable another 20,000 jobs in our economy.”
