Reading Time: < 1 minute

President Cyril Ramaphosa has urged South Africans not to succumb to the challenges that the ailing economy has presented, saying these should be confronted with resolve and action.

South Africa’s economy is growing below 1% making it even less likely to create jobs to reduce the high unemployment which is now sitting at 29% and is expected to increase this year.

Speaking during his State of the Nation Address in the National Assembly, Ramaphosa outlined government’s priorities for the year.
