Patrice Motsepe: The challenge is that we’ve got many poor, marginalized unemployed South AFricans who are primarily black. We need to apply the same optimism which is factually based, to the poor who are primarily black to the white South Africans. KM #DLS2018— EWN Reporter (@ewnreporter) November 1, 2018
