The people of South Africa have always had access to government aid in the form of grants. Most people are unemployed because not enough jobs have been created. This is the situation because funds intended for governmental purposes are instead used to line the pockets of the wealthy.
In spite of the adverse work situation, the impoverished have been given permission to better their lives thanks to government assistance.
It's great to live in South Africa, where the government shows genuine concern for its people and isn't scared to make empty promises. This is because many people have filed for and been denied the R350 award in the past two years after losing their jobs as a direct result of the COVID-19 virus. The restrictions imposed on South Africans were exceedingly rigorous for their own protection, thus the gift was intended to aid individuals who had been impacted particularly hard by the pandemic.
Today, many South Africans were disappointed when they were not awarded a grant from SASSA, the South African Social Security Agency. They were disappointed to find that they would not be eligible for a government subsidy since SASSA claimed they had no other source of income.
A number of people have expressed happiness at the news that the designated recipients of the R350 award would be selected. Some people who received the R350 award were caught red-handed making wasteful purchases, demonstrating that the government is unable to make rational policy decisions. Is this a new way for the government to further penalize the poor, or a creative strategy for accumulating power and riches at the expense of the poor?
What people are saying about the new SASSA regulations
