Trade union Solidarity released a list of positive things the union believes South Africa could expect in 2009. Following the recent economic crisis, South Africans have seen not only food prices, but also the overall costs of living increase tremendously.
As a result, this year has ended on a disheartening note. However Solidarity has identified some positive points that should make South Africans fell positive about next year.
“This includes lower interest rates, lower inflation, lower food prices, and lower fuel. We believe that more will be done to combat crime. There will be improvement to health facilities. There will be an improvement to infrastructure and telecommunication services,” said Solidarity spokesperson Jaco Kleynhans.
Kleynhans says that Solidarity believes there are many things to look forward to in the new year.
“South Africans can be more optimistic about 2009,” said Kleynhans.
