‘Poor people must be content with their situation. Poverty is not really government’s concern, we are just here to govern’, Says Ramaphosa

President Cyril Ramaphosa has proposed that the Jobs Summit be held on an annual basis to monitor the implementation of plans to create employment and grow the economy.
Ramaphosa says government, labour and business can’t wait for six years before another summit.

“We should get together in two year’s time and see what progress we have made.”
He however stated that people must not expect to get rich quick, “this is not a pyramid scheme” he said.
“Honestly, for now, poor people must be content with their situation. Poverty is not really government’s concern, we are just here to govern, we are simply trying to help,”
He says meeting within a short space of time will have an impact.
“Where there are weaknesses, let’s address those weaknesses, because this is a joint national project and we must get on with it.
