DURBAN - Government’s Social Relief of Distress Grant has received much criticism.
First introduced last year May, it was meant to assist people to meet their most basic needs.
But the R350 a month has been criticised as being nowhere near enough and this year it was terminated.
A 27-year-old from the KwaMashu Hostel in Durban, meanwhile, is proving that a little can go a long way.
Lindokuhle Msomi lost his job as a photographer and videographer -- along with millions of other South Africans -- during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Like others, he too asked himself: What can he do with just R350?
It’s a question he’s answered fully – by opening a fast-food outlet.
