Nzimande was delivering the keynote address at an entrepreneurship development lekgotla on Tuesday morning. He said state-owned enterprises could get back on their feet again by playing a role in entrepreneurial skills development.

“So we are talking of relationship between academia, the post-school education and training system, the private sector and our state-owned enterprises as well. “I, therefore, would like to encourage all our universities to work towards removing all barriers that we have.”
