style of lifeI say that the people in south africa have a pretty good life. Internet Users4,420,000 (2009) The country has many internet users (over 20%) this shows how many people have enough resources to get things that aren't that important such as internet. Because of the level of technology and the people that have enough resources to it, I think this clearly states how they are past the extreme poverty stage.
