Project helps black South Africans find work

Initiative to put black people in charge of firms formerly owned by white South Africans who previously excluded them.

    About a quarter of South Africans are unemployed, a key issue facing the country's leaders ahead of its elections this week.

    Despite the fall of the apartheid government more than 20 years ago, black South Africans are still less likely to be employed than their white compatriots.

    The government has started a programme to put black people in charge of businesses formerly owned by white South Africans who previously excluded them, but those given control complain obstacles still exist.
