QAKA, SOUTH AFRICA – FEBRUARY 12: A view of the main road and landscape on February 12, 2024, in Qaka, a rural village close to Port St Johns in Eastern in Cape Province, South Africa. Most of the residents in the village live on social grants and often the unemployment rate is 80-90 % in these rural villages. Thirty years of democracy in South Africa has brought small changes to rural people in South Africa, but the majority party African National Congress (ANC) relies on the rural and poor masses for votes every election, a time when promises of a better future is again communicated to the people, and sometimes they receive free food parcels  and t-shirts. An increasing number of  South Africans are struggling to eat properly due to extreme poverty, unemployment, high inflation. More and more children are malnourished and stunted and turn up in hospitals, especially in Eastern Cape Province and in many townships around South Africa’s main cities.
