Government fast-tracks plan to introduce a basic income grant

VAAL TRIANGLE - The Minister of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu, says her department has received widespread support for the introduction of a basic income grant, with proposals and funding options for the plan, which is expected to be completed within the next financial year. Minister Zulu says the grant has been fuelled by the significant increase in poverty and unemployment. Minister Zulu said the government’s approach would be aimed at ensuring that it links income support to development opportunities that will enable people to access skills training, jobs and other development initiatives.
