Mass deportation of illegals is the answer Get rid of the MYANC from power ANC is looking to retrench some of their employees, and somehow we still harbour hope on them to create employment for the masses? Please South Africa is not fertile for the prosperity of the youth, the government is doing little to nothing to help the youth, we can't break into corporate SA or survive in township economy which is currently being monopolized by foreigners.... Something nasty is brewing be warned!
You first need to get rid of the entire ANC as they devise policies that hinder necessary development. Start putting ideology free and capable people into the DTI. Stop immediately BEE that purposely excludes people that are able to improve employment! Think lots of companies have people who are over 60 years of age, maybe if companies don't let them stay long and make space for young people that can help some how. I'm not saying it in a bad way though, it's just something that I've noticed.

The answers are many but people have been silenced
