The unemployment in South Africa is huge problem and no one can solve it over for 30 years. At the moment we have 8,2 million unemployed South Africans with 24,5% unemployment rate in February 2016.
Do you remember 1980's when unemployment rate was 10-15%? Jobin.co.za specialists compared the unemployment rate when South Africa was controlled by four presidents from 1994 to 2016: Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma.
Nelson Mandela in 1994-1999 period have reached average 21,4% unemployment rate.
The lowest unemployment rate through Mandela's cadency was 16,71% in 1995.
Thabo Mbeki in 1999-2008 period have reached average 24,8 unemployment rate.
The lowest unemployment rate through Mbeki's cadency 22,525% in 2008.
Kgalema Motlanthe in 2008-2009 period have reached avarage 23,112% unemployment rate. But he served only 1 year period following the resignation of Thabo Mbeki in 2008.
Jacob Zuma in 2009-2016 period have reached average 24,75% unemployment rate.
The lowest unemployment rate through Zuma's cadency was 23,7% in 2009.
Almost 20 years we live with 23% unemployment rate and we don't see any changes. At the moment our country has over 8,2 million unemployed people who struggle for jobs, for better life. We don't need anything special, we just need new jobs and better life without corruption in our country.
Do you agree we need a new leader, we need new Mandela to go out from this situation?
