12.    Karabo Phafadu

& The True Jays Clothing Company

Karabo has been out of reach on his cell phone and at his store for a few weeks. We went to his store several times but found the premises closed.

However, we worked with the group Navigator, Mandla, and finally managed to get a hold of him telephonically. He informed us that he is currently not in Alex, but in the Joburg CBD. He said he would not be available to conduct the interview currently as he has been very ill since shortly after the GE program.

As a result of his illness, he had to close down the business since then until now. He indicated that he foresees that he will reopen the shop after a few months when he recovers, he will be able to then resume the implementation of the recommendations made to him.
