SECTION A: COMPREHENSION QUESTION 1 Read the following passage and answer the questions. In the case of multiple-choice questions, write down only the question number and the letter corresponding with the answer. 1. Now 54, Sabina Khoza started her working life as a salesperson. Then the company she was working for shut down and sold their delivery vans to staff members. 'I managed to buy eight of the kombis,' says Sabina. That was the start of her taxi fleet – which eventually grew to 17 vehicles. But crime forced her to 5 abandon her budding taxi business. In fact, sick of the hijackings and violence, Sabina decided she needed a break from township life altogether. And she didn’t have to go far! A farm was for sale in Zuurbekom, on the outskirts of Soweto. 'It was strange,' she recalls. 'I’d just moved from Mofolo in Soweto 10 and started off-loading my furniture when a group of people came to help. 'Once the work had been done, they disappeared without as much as asking for a cent. This surprised me. Township people do not do any work without being paid. 'On the fourth day I saw these people again. I asked where they were staying. It turned out they were living on my farm. When they realised I was the 15 new owner, they begged me not to evict them.' Sabina was sympathetic to their predicament, and realised she’d have to find a way to make the best of the situation. The opportunity came when her tenants approached her about breeding chickens. 'I had never come close to a live chicken in my life,' laughs Sabina. 'As a matter 20 of fact, I was rather afraid of chickens.' Still, she bought 10 chickens and a feeder – and waited for the eggs to come. And waited. And waited. 'Then one day a visitor told us we were actually rearing cocks without hens,' laughs Sabina. This setback didn’t discourage her, though. Soon she had her hens and had also received training in how to raise chickens. 'I remembered 25 that when I stayed in Soweto, I could only get chickens in Kliptown,' she says. 'So I went and spoke to people in the area. Then one of my tenants went there to sell the birds. We’d spent R11,20 on each chicken and sold them at R20 each. In less than a week, we’d sold our birds.' 'Since then, we’ve been getting chicks regularly from a supplier and we’re 30 currently producing 150 000 birds a year. We also supply supermarkets with vegetables.'

Khoza’s successful farming venture incorporates the latest technology and farming methods, and additional community projects include vegetable and maize production, as well as a guest house, which accommodates trainee 35 farmers. 'I train members of the community and offer them opportunities as partners, not just as employees,' says Sabina, who has won numerous awards, including the Department of Agriculture’s Female Farmer...
