The continuing increase in fuel prices and the increase in VAT has left South Africans reeling at the high cost of living which many believe will increase criminality in the country.

Cyril Ramaphosa promised that he had his best ministers working on a solution.

At the start of July Ramaphosa inaugurated a team of ministers and handed them a two week deadline to find measures to ease the cost burden on the poor.

Addressing the press from Saudi Arabia, the president apparent doesn’t want people to get their hopes up for a quick fuel price fix.

While Ramaphosa may have received a backlash from the public over the skyrocking fuel price, the president has urged the country’s labour force to increase production to help bring down foreign goods.
