President Cyril Ramaphosa is ballooning the Presidency by absorbing people from the private sector.
Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema has once again questioned the President’s decision to bring in his former mining colleague, Sipho Nkosi to the Presidency to address the red tape preventing small businesses from flourishing.
Malema says that this has effectively rendered the Small Business Department and its Minister useless.
He says that this department should be closed, as all of government should be working to bolster small businesses.
Members of Parliament are participating in the State of the Nation Address debates.
While there has been many questions about the president’s energy plans, his policies to help the poor have been criticised for ignoring the factors that are preventing them from thriving.
