It is said that women are the second most unemployed people in South Africa after the youth. The stats say that 34% of women in South Africa are unemployed. And guess who has finally come out of the closet to address this matter? President Cyril Ramaphosa. But why would he speak out at such a time as this when the elections are just around the corner? It's so embarrassing on just how dirty politicians will play just to secure votes. It appears that they don't view the numbers as people because it they did they wouldn't be doing the things that are doing such as making false promises and false gestures of kindness.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is the who said that South Africa is facing two pandemics, with one being the Covid-19 pandemic and the other one being the Gender Based Violence (GBV) pandemic. Which of the two has he been taking seriously? It's the Covid-19 pandemic. He totally forgot about the GBV pandemic just like he has forgotten about the Phoenix massacre.
