Colonialism, apartheid and black patriarchal society in South Africa gave rise to racial and sexual oppression and exploitation, especially of black women. The article attempts to investigate the effectiveness of government policies and programmes that are aimed at developing and emancipating black women who participate as entrepreneurs in small and medium scale businesses in Gauteng with emphasis on the Tshwane Metropolitan Area. Empowering black women is an economic and essential component of national and provincial strategies to address poverty among South Africans. The article also attempts to explore the level of the implementation process and the possible challenges facing South African women entrepreneurs in the Tshwane Municipality Area. Policy lessons and recommendations are made towards empowering emerging black women entrepreneurs in South Africa, especially those from the located area of research - the Tshwane Metropolitan area.
