South African Spending Budget

02 July 2014, 05:00
I visited a few pages on the internet and I was trying to find out how much is the spending budget of our country South Africa and what it means in layman's terms.

I found out that the spending will be at R1 250 000 000 000 or R1.25 Trillion. What does it mean for a population of 53 300 000 or 53,3 Million people of South Africa. It means each person can take home R23 452. Each month each person can take home R1 954.

Please help correct my Mathematics.
 
If the figures are correct. Maybe it explains why we have so many poor people. The plight of the poor people is not about to change any time soon.

Corruption is stealing from the little money that is meant to make a difference.

What hope is there without God?

One of the most common critiques of atheism is that atheism offers nothing. It offers no hope of answered prayer, no hope of eternal life and no help from God in a time of dire need.  Read more...
