Pressure mounts for Ramaphosa to decide on the implementation of basic income grant

We have previously heard that the advisory council of the President has advise ced him not to implement the basic income grants to unemployed people between the ages of 18-59. The reason is that the country can not afford to have such commitments especially with the kind of economy that the country is under. It is way too risky.

However, it seems like that was not the last we heard of the president advisory council. It is now believed that there are two factions in that council at the moment, as there are those people who believe that it would be good to introduce the basic income grant given the economical status of the ground.

We know that a few months back South Africans would have wanted the basic income grant but not anymore. South Africans are now saying that they want jobs and not grants. The standard of leaving is just so high and people can not live on those grants of R350. People want to work for their money and not get freebies all the times.
