To ease the rising cost of living, President Ramaphosa has also announced that the government will continue his SRD subsidy for his R350, which had been extended until March 2024. R350 Social Distress Relief Grants (SRD) now reach approximately 7.8 million people nationwide.

The government introduced SRD subsidies in May 2020 as an interim measure to address the needs of the most vulnerable affected by COVID-19 related lockdown measures.

The president noted that millions of South Africans are unable to support themselves and their families, and that rising costs of living are exacerbating poverty and inequality.

Currently, he has more than 25 million people in our country receiving some form of income support. “We will definitely increase existing welfare benefits to cushion the poor against rising inflation. This will be decided by the finance minister in the budget,” the president said.
