President Cyril Ramaphosa has challenged South Africans to play their part in ensuring that South Africa moves in a positive direction. He was speaking in Midrand at the launch of the Indlulamithi Scenarios 2030 which presents three scenarios of where South Africa could possibly be in 12 years’ time.
One scenario, Ibhujwa, sees a deeply divided SA where there is deep erosion of trust with the unemployment rate at 22 percent. The second scenario, Nayi le Walk, sees a nation with increased levels of trust, faster urban and rural land reform as well as reduced unemployment.
The third scenario, Gwara-Gwara sees income inequality exceeding levels seen in 2010 and unemployment at over 25 percent.
“This process challenges us to engage with the realities of our societies in all its complexities. The various scenarios that the Indlulamithi is dealing with are scenarios that could happen. We could have a false dawn where we just have a Gwara Gwara. We could have any of these scenarios. The important thing is what we all can collectively do to avoid the negative scenario.”
