There have also been claims of the South African government plans to let go of 30 000 workers over a three year period in order to reduce costs though the Public Service and Administration Department are refuting these claims and Eskom has also been in the firing line over proposed retrenchments..

Performance coach Gielie Hoffmann spoke to Azania Mosaka about the psychology of being unemployed.

He says the big underlying challenge is the uncertainty.
