21 April 2020 – Ramaphosa (CVirus)

On Monday, President Cyril Ramaphosa and his Cabinet discussed interventions to ease the economic impact of the nationwide lockdown to slow the spread of Covid-19.   So far, the government has announced R41 billion in relief measures.   The lockdown has been successful in “flattening the curve” of infections, but the price to the economy is, many believe, becoming life-stealing in itself.   Also, the R41 billion is woefully inadequate, considering the utter devastation wrought by the lockdown.

SA to increase welfare provision over coronavirus – Ramaphosa ...

“New economy”
“New horizens to all lSouth Africans'”


Maatskaplike probleme is en gaan “afhanklikheid van die regering” word.   Diegene wat dus bydrae tot die belastinginkomste, se bydraes sal / kan verhoog word om voorsiening te maak vir die maatskaplike probleme wat geskep is met die grendelstaat.

Kleiner besighede moet nou ekstra gaan leen, en selfs by die sogenaamde hulpfonds soos Solidarity, gaan die “donasies” wat ontvang word, deurgaan as lenings, en nie as skenkings nie.

Al hierdie aansoekvorms is steeds gebaseer op swart bemagtiging om kastig ontslae te raak van die sogenaamde “apartheid” bevoordeling of “regstellende aksies vir gelykheid”.   Geen ander land op die stadium maak van swart bemagtiging en bevoordeling gebruik nie, en dit net om kleiner besighede permanent te laat sink.

Die vraag is, hoe kan daar na 26 jaar steeds ‘n apartheid probleem wees as die ANC alles regeer – hoeveel is in die 26 jaar nie gesteel nie.  Dis nie die sogenaamde “apartheidslede” wat die land regeer en fondse steel nie.   Die korrupsie is op die regeringsvlakke, dit het absoluut niks met die sogenaamde apartheid te doen nie.   Die sogenaamde apartheid bestaan net in sekere oë, aangesien meer as een derde van die blanke bevolking tot niet en in arm kampe sit, of oorsee gaan werk om te kan oorleef.

Hoekom word die triljoene wat gesteel is nie aangewend om die sogenaamde ongelykhede uit te weg te ruim nie.  Hierdie virus word as rookskerm gebruik om kleinsake ondernemings totaal te vernietig en ook die honderde duisende werkers wat ‘n inkomste verdien het, moet dan van die regering afhanklik raak en met daardie “sassa” toelaes kan geen mens oorleef nie – dit is uit en uit ‘n kommunistiese siening waar die regering die enigste werkgewer gaan wees #bolsjevisme


South Africa will increase welfare provision to help poor households suffering because of a nationwide lockdown aimed at containing the country’s coronavirus outbreak, President Cyril Ramaphosa said.    In a weekly newsletter to the nation, Ramaphosa said that the lockdown had revealed “a very sad fault line in our society that reveals how grinding poverty, inequality and unemployment is tearing the fabric of our communities apart”.

He cited images of desperate people clamouring for food parcels at distribution centres as the lockdown leaves millions of people who are unemployed, working in the informal sector or in low-paid jobs struggling to support themselves.   Ramaphosa did not specify how the government would lift welfare provision, but some economists and labour unions have called for social grant payments to be topped up.    Africa’s most industrialised country is one of the world’s most unequal, with starkly different living conditions for those at the top and bottom of the income pyramid.

It has the most confirmed coronavirus cases in sub-Saharan Africa, at 3 158, with 54 deaths from the COVID-19 disease caused by the virus. Ramaphosa said the government was preparing for a probable surge in infections in the coming weeks and months.

Ramaphosa’s cabinet is due to discuss new measures to cushion the economic and social impact of COVID-19, among them whether to close down ailing South African Airways, a major drain on state resources in recent years.   He said in the newsletter that the government would this week announce interventions to shield people from starvation.

“Even when the nationwide lockdown is lifted, its effects will continue to be felt for some time,” .    “Food support is a short-term emergency measure. It will need to be matched by sustainable solutions that help our most vulnerable citizens weather the difficult times that are still to come.”
