Ramaphosa has been warned not introduce the basic income grant for the unemployed people

The issue of the basic income grant has been discussed on so many levels and we also know that his matter was before parliament after the minister of social development Lindiwe Zulu submitted it to parliament so that they should just consider this to help the many South Africa's who are not working and having it hard. Millions of people in South Africa are living beyond the poverty line and the department thought that having a basic income grant can be able to help in this regard.

We know that the president will be giving the State of the Nation address in February and this is the time when he would have to outline if the government is considering the basic income grant.

The president has been warned that it is not a good idea at all for the country to have a basic income grant implemented at this current moment because of the economical status of the country. For those who were hoping that there would be a basic income grant, they better start facing the reality that there won't be such a grant. The president was ad iced by this advisory council which was appointed by him.
