6:34 pm
la koobooley. i don't know. we've seen some of the worst violence in south africa since apartheid in the 900 ninety's. how did this spiral out of control? stay in the government has betrayed the hopes and dreams of our people. liberation . you'll remember that from 994. when nelson mandela became president until 2020, our economy has expanded capital terms, but only 18 percent. so what we've seen now is what's happening now, we've got overlapping and public health, humanitarian economic crisis. we've also got a political crisis and pocketed at war with itself. and we also have a public safety or security crisis to start off as a political issue over the jailing of former president jacob's duma. so is there a political motive behind the latest violence?
6:35 pm
okay, started, is it, it is a political reasons and whether you are 3 or don't agree with what jacob might say . he's a political grievance that has to be addressed and are really disappointed about political leaders, especially the president, the leadership, when this thing started on flattening, they should've been on the 1st claim to, to, to probably do not talk to talk to the people and calm down the situation because of content security response that isn't what preceded by political response, but now it has moved into something to be to in the original crisis. we are seeing practical honda. we're seeing and people stealing food and then the major future thing. people hungry a survey was done for that to go with 10000000 people, our population of 60000000 people. we had 100 in april and may when the survey was done and 3, but those people were children. so we've got
6:36 pm
a huge monetary crisis at the moment. have the covered line restrictions imposed by the government played a part in causing this unrest. and i think in many countries in europe, which has gone back to normal, just call the situation. the government has watched it from day one, and what happens is they are now a another when i put an over the top lockdown and they didn't allocate even a st towards the millions of people who would be affected by its devastating impact . and that is one of the many things that happened just yet in terms of the bad management of the economy, because the government started with their budget. one of the most of p f. i just post the politics used to when they said they're going to withdraw about 255000000000 rent drumbeat. calling to be due to these off, derek measures, the customer social security support. it was given to people during code and that,
6:37 pm
and then they implemented huge dr. what we have for that right now we have an advisor, society, good unemployment, young people, 74 percent, almost african people. indigenous african people about 47.8 percent among african females and 51.5 percent in 2 provinces. the problem because interesting, keep unemployment is about 50 percent. so we have questions and fibers will psyche, district people what solving and told to the advisor at the moment and to suck, punching off the mismanagement of the economy over a long period to back to 94. so what needs to be done and what for solution to addressing this level of inequality when you can and when you have in the earthquake, you start to military and response. so you provide and medicines for people who
6:38 pm
effective for writing comes to their cameras and shelton. so when you start african 4 to 5, when calling for your basic income drugs to be paid to and people who are between the age of 18 and 59 and without conditions can be a conditional cash transfer to the people. and i'm saying that it can be implemented over treated because what we need to address the immediate humanitarian trust and shall we other country in the world. we've got shocking african at the last time, 64 percent of people were testified as under the policy. so what can do is to reduce poverty over 3 years by 66 percent. and then the next thing we have to do into just for security and that can eliminate poverty as well. 3 appears cannot completely speaking cost from 200. thank you very much for your insights. now,

6:41 pm
just as it is gaining momentum. only about 2 percent of south africa, the population a fully inoculated with a number of new infections around 20000 a day. speeding up the vaccination rate is essential. but in the protests and looting that's been difficult, plus food shortages make it hard for people to award the crowds. if we have members of the public flocking into the shops and most by foot stuff, we are also risking the spreads of private 19. and it will go to control uncontrollable levels with a delta event that is currently prevalent in our country. in the market, you won't have to worry about the solid waste of corona, virus infections, a lot more great. it's easily transmitted. patients are now presenting with
