President Cyril Ramaphosa has welcomed the recent improvement in the country’s employment figures.

In delivering the Budget Vote, the president has expressed confidence that the measures taken to grow the country’s economy are working.

He told the National Assembly that the pledges received to bolster the country’s development will bear fruit.

President Ramaphosa had to wait just over an hour before he could present the budget vote.

This as the Economic Freedom Fighters refused to hear the president, claiming that he is a money launderer.

This allegation has yet to be tested in court.

It relates to a robbery at the president’s Limpopo game farm in February 2020.

The incident was not reported to the police.

But the EFF’s claims follow allegations that foreign currency had been stolen from the president’s farm.

He has however denied that claim.
