Political Desk: Forecasting project predicts three scenarios for SA in 2030
The future of South Africa has been forecast as reaching one of three possible scenarios by 2030.
Indlulamithi South Africa has released a new report outlining what it says are the three scenarios facing South Africa in the run up to 2030.
If you take the bourgeoisie you have a situation where the State failure to do the law enforcement and its capacity, and also failure to deal with the socio-economic disparities create a situation where the rich create a separate, alternative life where they try to have their insulated life.Professor Somadoda Fikeni, Political Analyst & member of Indlulamithi SA Scenarios 2030 Group
The report also suggests a situation where SA is 'in step with itself'. Where GDP is growing and there is growing social cohesion.
Prof. Fikeni went on to outline the third scenario.
[Then there is the scenario where] those who are at the bottom begin to live a life where they almost ignore the State.Professor Somadoda Fikeni, Political Analyst & member of Indlulamithi SA Scenarios 2030 Group
Prof. Fikeni says it is clear where the current problems in the country lie.
What South Africa has been poor at is translating policy intentions into actions.Professor Somadoda Fikeni, Political Analyst & member of Indlulamithi SA Scenarios 2030 Group
So what does Prof. Fikeni see as the solution?
Spending more resources, or more focus, on how can we have courage of conviction to see things we would like to see done, being implemented with all sectors of the society participating.Professor Somadoda Fikeni, Political Analyst & member of Indlulamithi SA Scenarios 2030 Group
