"We have the highest unemployment in the world. I am committed to the pursuit of placing a job in every home. Let hope live, our country will thrive."

How are you going to do that if most companies in South Africa are retrenching?— Lindiwe sigalelana (@Maleendy11) May 15, 2019
Give us jobs as you promised then the unemployment rate will reduce. You said ANC doesn't have a plan, use your plan to prove them wrong.— Faith & Hope Foundation (@Faith_hopefound) May 15, 2019
