The government should put a cap on this monthly grant. I come from a place where people call the grant money Michael Jackson.— Clive, caller in Ranburg
Many South Africans make it such a taboo subject that we just don't talk about it at all.— Nicole, caller in Joburg
Shaming these girls is definitely not the answer. We need to empower our youth, both boys and girls and the parents on how to be responsible parents so they can add value to society.— Darlene, caller in Joburg
At the moment it's so unfair, because the girls carry it like a cancer. Teach the boys how to be good parents and not be absent fathers.— Michael, caller in Sandton
