JOHANNESBURG - Poultry farmer Country Bird Holdings denies that it's planning to leave the North West province.

This is despite Deputy Cogta Minister Obed Bapela telling eNCA that the company is threatening to relocate.

Bapela says CBH -- which supplies KFC -- has cited poor service delivery in Mahikeng as a reason it wants to leave.

This might see some 2,000 people losing jobs.

Bapela says he will, together with North West Premier Bushy Maape, hold talks with CBH on Wednesday.
