Poetess Ntsiki Mazwai has questioned whether President Cyril Ramaphosa can be able to survive on R350 per month for 6 months.

This comes after the national address on April 21 on measures taken by government to relieve South Africans financially in order to survive the lockdown.

For many, R350 for the unemployed is better than nothing, however for people like Ntsiki Mazwai it is just not enough looking at the price of necessities such as meat and rent.

She even said the R350 is equivalent to a bottle of wine. Emphasising how little the amount is for 6 months.

The artist who wrote a scathing letter to the President did not quite accept the R350 allocated for unemployed people and suggested that R1000 would do.

In the letter she wrote, she alleged that the lockdown would only benefit the president and the white compatriots whose businesses are still up and running. Whilst black businesses are closed and not operating.

Not everyone agrees with Ntsiki and some always challenge her views. She told people to redirect their anger at the President as they are hungry and attack her for no reason.
