South Africa remains one of the most unequal countries in the world. This is according to the United Nations’ (UN) latest Human Development Report. Ranked 114 out of 189 countries, South Africa finds itself nestled between Venezuela and Palestine.
The report assessed a wide range of socioeconomic indicators and a detailed view of a world in flux. Roughly 18.9 per cent of the population survives on R28 a day. The UNHD report also found that the wealthiest 10 per cent of the country’s population holds more than half of the nation’s income.
