Fix SA economy before changing names

Jasmine Uys, Alicedale Athlone

South Africa was one of the Country’s that was hardest hit by the new strain of Covid-19.

Unemployment keeps on rising, while the taxpayers are getting less and less. South Africa’s debt is now in the trillions. More and more people go hungry to bed at night yet the government has money to spend on the changing of names such as Port Elizabeth, and the East London airport etc.

Couldn’t the government spend that money on more important things? There is a time and place for everything, and, seriously, we have major problems and issues in South Africa and the changing of names is definitely not one of it.
