President Jacob Zuma has torched a storm after he said South Africans battling to find jobs must join stokvels. Speaking at a fundraiser in Limpopo on Thursday, the president shocked attendees when he encouraged them to join stokvels and pyramid schemes to make a living.

“South Africans complain too much, there are many money making schemes that are making people rich everyday but you guys are waiting for me to come and give you a job. If you can not get a job, just join things like MMM. My gardener and maid do that and they get more money than what I am paying them.”, the president said
