JOHANNESBURG - Unsurprisingly, South Africa is very far from meeting its National Development Plan (NDP) to eliminate poverty by 2030.

That’s according to the latest Poverty Trends in South Africa report, released by Stats SA today.

 

The country's children make up the majority of those living in poverty.

 

 

Women and women-headed households are the poorest in the country.

 

The report shows that Limpopo and the Eastern Cape remain the poorest provinces in the country.
