There’s further kickback to the Mid-Term Budget delivered by Finance Minister Tito Mboweni. This as civil servants have threatened to go on a national strike if government’s plans to freeze their salary increases for the next three years materialises.

Minister Mboweni says that the wage bill will be the biggest contributor to the R 300 billion savings government wants to accumulate to address the budget deficit.

The Public Servants Association (PSA) says that government must recover the money lost because of corruption, stressing that taking money from workers is unfair.
