One of the characteristics of a civilised nation is the commitment of its business community, as an assistant of the welfare state, to the social development of lower classes within the vision of achieving legitimacy through shared growth. The post-apartheid South Africa is fitting into that category because, under the impulse of its government, it prods the private sector to do much more in social works, especially through empowering the social capital structures. It is against that background that AFMEX CARGO, one of the fast growing freight companies with a 19 year experience, has been excelling in donations in favour of the bulk of South Africa’s needy.

Last Saturday 06 June 2015, AFMEX CARGO management, led by its CEO Mrs Yale Muanza, along with Mr Sebastien Muanza, the Directing Manager, and Mr Arnold de Souza Tulomba, the operator and sales representative, paid a visit to the Avril Elizabeth Home—a Germiston-based public benefit organisation that provide 24 hours holistic residential and day care to persons of all ages, backgrounds, etc., who are intellectually disabled and who may or may not be physically disabled—to which they donated a lot of goods. This one was the second visit they paid to the home in the framework of AFMEX CARGO’s comprehensive social development programme, and it is to occur on an annual basis.

Furthermore, the freight company has been gifting money to the home every month for three years. This is why the recent visit brought even more joy to all the dwellers of the Avril Elizabeth Home and confirmed AFMEX CARGO as one of its most reliable benefactors. The joy could be perceived on everybody’s face, including sister Sungulani, the receptionist, who pleaded for the visit to be frequent given the home’s multiple challenges. The interaction between AFMEX CARGO delegation and the dwellers was facilitated by Ncedisa Mtimkulu, who also showed them all the facilities.

 the question asked by Mr Isaac Mabaka, CEO of IML Image Production, the enterprise that delivered the media and film coverage of the event, on the reason of the visit, Mrs Muanza replied by pointing out two drivers: first, the imperative of social peace ensured by a humane-face capitalism; and second, the impulse of the South African government, which, as abovementioned, imposes on each enterprise to share part of its profit with the poor and the disadvantaged. Her reply testifies South Africa’s resolve in the developmental state’s pathway, stressing achieving legitimacy on shared growth, in the footsteps of the newly industrialised East Asian countries. A model for the rest of Africa.
