SONA: Food Security Researchers Call For Change to government’s policy on food security

Food security researchers are calling for change in regard to government’s policy on food security. They go on to say that the child support grant of R430 a month is insufficient to significantly impact malnutrition rates among South Africa’s children. This they said ahead of President Cyril Ramaphosa State of the Nation Address calling on him to do something. Now that the president is done with his speech, are they happy with what he said regarding this issue and also what would they like to see change?

GUEST: Professor Julian May - Director of the national Centre of Excellence in Food Security, at the University of the Western Cape
