Government ‘can’t create all the jobs’

Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said yesterday the idea that the government would create all the jobs was not true.

Gordhan said at an ANC briefing in Port Elizabeth that opposition parties who used jobs as a way to attract unemployed people to vote for them was misleading.

“No political party creates jobs, and no government can create all the jobs that are required . . . So, the truth must be told,” Gordhan said.
