It was recently reported that the R350 unemployment grant will have to be made permanent, but President Cyril Ramaphosa warned that doing so would cause the South African economy to suffer a slew of problems. When SA was initially affected by the 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 received no income, such as child grants. 



Thuli Madonsela, the former public protector, has now thrown a bombshell on President Cyril Ramaphosa, claiming that the economy will not suffer as a result of the fund, which was not even awarded based on poverty levels. It also won't preclude somebody from finding work simply because they are receiving this grant. The grant must be extended indefinitely. 



Blade Mzimande also stated that the R350 award has been of significant assistance to many persons in their household around 2020. Many people were unemployed, and we were able to support them and their families by providing financial assistance. A petition was allegedly passed, and many individuals appeared to have signed it. A future conversation with the Department of Social Development is stated to be taking place right now. Ramaphosa will have to provide more evidence and explain the path forward to the youth, particularly those who are now unemployed. 


Opinion: 


If the R350 has an influence on job creation and employment prospects, the government should expand further on a plan of action so that everyone who applies for it understands the situation. At the moment, not everyone has received the money; thousands of unemployed individuals are still attempting to apply for it, let alone being granted.
