Abstract

Ntabankulu, a small municipality in the Eastern Cape, has the poorest human development index (HDI) score in South Africa. This indicator shows that there are health factors that are reducing life expectancy in Ntabankulu. It also shows that levels of education are so low that people are unable to lift themselves out of poverty, says Craig Schwabe.
