Half of South Africa chronically poor

Forty-nine percent of  South Africans were considered chronically poor during the period of 2008-2014/15.

The World Bank’s Victor Sulla says this rate is astonishingly high.
"It's very high. Half of the people are considered chronically poor or have average consumption below the upper bound poverty line. 78% person of South Africans were in poverty at least once during the 2008-2014/15."
