Some would argue that this is election time, but Ramaphosa has been steady and consistent with realising policies since his inaugural. In my view, Ramaphosa has been the most progressive ANC president to date.

I can only hope, that whatever decision is going to be made, that the government is going into this soberly, but I am not convinced.

It's not Ramaphosa, an ideology and plan of action (well thought out and taking into consideration all the inevitable buggerups) is being followed.

Zuma's and Mbeki's tenure, was nowhere as progressive. Socialistic policies would be hyped up only to collapse.

Yes, it is a plan, and it is publicly punted as master plans.

Though there will be people by the masses who will support BIG, it is the taxpayers on whom the onus will be placed to sustain BIG. Everyone between the poor and elite is collateral. I don't want to even know what is being planned when these policies can't be sustained anymore. Foreign acquisitions…

Corporate entities won't comply.
Gosh I wish they would.

Just put all the money we would have paid in tax into some account somewhere. Across the entire country. Grind this whole mess to a halt and force these nutjobs to listen.

Sometimes, the best way to learn is to just experience things for yourself. Go ahead ANC, go for it. Do not listen to all the negative tarts out there.....

Welfare grants not pension grants.

For me its bad enough we pay soo much tax. But we have a community forum on FB and its always inundated by people asking when they can apply for their SASSA Pension. They buy fancy cars, live in fancy houses but save almost nothing for retirement and SASSA will bail them out.

But then they complain the R1900pm isnt enough. They want SASSA to make it 10k per month.

Tiring dealing with such people.

SASSA is there to help the needy, not the idiots around me that has plenty of opportunity to save for retirement....but DONT.
