The SRD grant was made available for South Africans during the lockdown, this is because people couldn't make enough money to sustain themselves at that point. However, now that we have moved to level one and businesses are opening up once again, the SRD grant is still ongoing and not being stopped. I believe there is a reason for this and that reason also leads in to why I believe the SRD grant may stop in After the December payment. Allow me to explain.
The SRD Grant should have stopped :
While there seems like there is no reason for the SRD to continue while the Country has opened up, I believe that there is actually one. To keep people happy, we are approaching the municipal elections in November and I do not believe that the government would want to make people unhappy when there vote is on the line. Instead they may keep the grant running until the election is over and may end it in late November or possibly after the December payment. In the next few days you are going to see the ANC put out all the stops to make the citizens happy. So here's what you should know.
The Mistakes of the past :
Remember that the ANC has been behind many things in the past, like the cigarette ban, inaction during the previous protests and many corruption allegations. If they do offer you anything to try and make you happy, take it, because there is no need to refuse free things. However keep your resolve determined to vote for change and make a vote not influenced by what is presently being offered to you. What do you think of these observations, tell me in the comments section and follow for more news as it happens.
