According to some, our income should determine the number of children we should have. Because of this mentality, we have few kids.
According to others, the number of children you have determines your income. Because of this mentality they have more children.
In Africa, some people have children with the intention of profiting from their children. No matter how poor they are, people with that mentality deliberately have more children just to increase their social grants. As long as social grants exist, these are the people who continue to rule us indirectly by using their numbers to vote for what they need most (Social Grants) and they continue to profit from their children.
