ISIMO SEZOMNOTHO

Umnotho womhlaba uyaqhubeka nokuhlangabezana nobunzima obukhulu. Umnotho womhlaba ukhule ngama-3.4% ngowezi-2014. Amazwe ahwebelana kakhulu neNingizimu Afrika akhombise ukukhula komnotho okuhlukahlukene. Umnotho wamazwe angamalungu eNhlangano Yobumbano Lwamazwe ase-Yurophu (i-EU) ukhule kuphela ngo-0.9% kanti umnotho wezwe lase-Japan unciphe ngo-0.1%. Kepha-ke umnotho wamazwe esifunda se-Afrika esiseNingizimu Yogwadule i-Sahara wona ukhule ngama-5% kanti umnotho waseMelika ukhule ngamandla njengoba ukhule ngama-2.4%. Umnotho wezwe lase-China uyaqhubeka nokuphelelwa yisivinini njengoba wehlele kuma-7.4% kodwa-ke noma kunjalo leli kuseyizinga lokukhula komnotho elihle kakhulu. Amanani entengo yezimbiwa, ezinjengelitshe okuxetshulwa kulona insimbi, (i-iron ore) amalahle, iplatinamu kanye nowoyela ongahluziwe asengaphansi kakhulu uma eqhathaniswa namanani aphezulu owezi-2008. Ukwehla kakhulu kwenani lentengo kawoyela ongahluziwe emhlabeni jikelele kubahlomulisile abantu baseNingizimu Afrika kepha lokhu kuzonciphisa ukukhula komnotho wamazwe ase-Afrika akhiqiza uwoyela, okungamazwe asemqoka kakhulu kwiNingizimu Afrika ngoba phela yiwona athenga kakhulu izimpahla ezikhiqizwe kuleli.

Kusenongabazane olukhulu uma kubhekwa izilinganiso zesimo somnotho emhlabeni esikhathini esizayo, njengoba isibikezelo sezilinganiso zeSikhwama Sezimali Samazwe ngamazwe (i-IMF) zesikhathi esizayo zomkhiqizo ophelele wamazwe omhlaba sikhombisa ukuthi lokhu kuzoba ngaphansi kwalokho obekulindelekile. INingizimu Afrika akumele ithembele kuphela ekukhuleni komnotho wamazwe omhlaba ngethemba lokuthi lokhu kuzokhuthaza ukukhula komnotho kuleli. Ungabazane olukhona njengamanje oluphathelene nesimo somnotho wamazwe omhlaba selulethe ukudikibala nokuphelelwa yithemba kwezebhizinisi futhi kwehlisa nokwethenjwa komnotho wakuleli ngabathengi.

INingizimu Afrika iyaqhubeka nokubhekana nezingqinamba zomnotho. Kepha-ke uhulumeni unalo ithenjana lokuthi umnotho uzobuyela esimweni sawo futhi ukhule ngendlela efanelekile, ikakhulu njengoba kunethemba lokuthi isimo sokuphakelwa kukagesi sizoba ngcono kakhulu esikhathini esizayo, kubandakanya nemizamo kahulumeni enohlonze yokukhulisa amazinga okutshalwa kwezimali.
