With unemployment figures sitting at almost 28% in South Africa and with a very low skilled population, a conversation needs to be held about how to prepare the economy to be able to be on par with other countries.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa CEO of SqwidNet Phathizwe Malinga says customers expect things to improve on a daily and yearly basis.
