presidencyNews24 reports that it appears that President Cyril Ramaphosa is intent on proving the adage that charity begins at home by fast tracking his promise to uplift South Africa by tackling unemployment.  

Less than a week after he promised to address the jobs crisis, the Presidency has advertised six vacancies at its Cape Town and Pretoria offices.  The vacancies include two catering managerial posts, vacancies for housekeeping managers in Cape Town and Pretoria, a supply chain management director, and a chief director for legal and executive services.  In his State of the Nation Address (Sona), Ramaphosa promised to embark on several measures to address the unemployment challenge.  One was to convene a jobs summit within the next few months to align the efforts of every sector.  "We will expect this summit to come up with practical solutions and initiatives that will be implemented immediately," Ramaphosa said.
