SA Welfare Grants Not Permanent – Molewa

Social Development Minister defends government’s track record on welfare grants as a job ‘well done’

Social Development Minister, Edna Molewa, has defended the government’s track record on welfare grants as a job ‘well done’, but insisted that the grants are not intended to be a permanent feature of South Africa’s social development geography.

Molewa’s remarks followed economist, Mike Schussler’s comments that the country is the largest welfare state in the world and that the current rate of three people on grants for every taxpayer is unsustainable.
Molewa says that the grants were not intended to be permanent, particularly for young women, the idea being to empower them to take advantage of educational and economic opportunities.
