Every child born in South Africa today already owes R67 000 before they have even taken their first breath. And this number is going up as the government continues to borrow more and more.
Years of the ANC government spending too much and borrowing too much, long before the Covid-19 crisis, have left the country with R4 trillion in debt. That is why there is not enough money to help people now.
The more the government borrows, the more we will all have to pay in interest – leaving less and less money for basic services like education and health.
The ANC government must get debt under control, before it takes the whole country down with it. It has to stop.
