Pay the Grant, Thuli Madonsela said to Cyril Ramaphosa, referring to the R350 money.

“Pay the Grant ” : Thuli Madonsela dropped a bombshell to Cyril Ramaphosa about the R350 funds


It was recently announced that the R350 unemployment grant will have to be made permanent, but President Cyril Ramaphosa warned that this would cause a slew of issues for the South African economy. When SA was initially attacked by COVID-19, the R350 grants were implemented. It was primarily for individuals who had lost their jobs as a result of the virus, as well as those who were unemployed at the time and did not receive any form of income, such as child grants or other benefits.

Former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has now delivered a bombshell to President Cyril Ramaphosa, claiming that the economy will not suffer as a result of the cash, which was not even distributed based on poverty levels. It will not hinder somebody from finding work because they are receiving this grant. The grant should be extended indefinitely.

Blade Mzimande further stated that the R350 award has been of great assistance to many people in their home around the year 2020. Many people were unemployed, and money from us assisted them and their families. A petition is believed to have been passed, with many individuals signing it. A future dialogue with the Department of Social Development is said to be undertaken at this time. Ramaphosa will have to provide more proof and explain the path forward to the youth, particularly those who are now unemployed.


If the R350 has an influence on job development and opportunity, the government should clarify further on a strategy to make things obvious to everyone who applies. At the moment, not everyone has received the money; thousands of unemployed people are still attempting to apply, much alone get approved.
