Discussing the outcome of the Budget speech

The Editing Allowed team, lead by Peter Bruce take a detailed look at the 2018 budget announcement. For the first time in the ANC rule, the country had a remarkable budget in 2018. The party has crossed its own Rubicon and raised the VAT from 14% to 15%. A line that many thought would never move as it hits the poor and the rich alike. Pravin Gordhan joins Peter Bruce on the line to discuss the outcome of the Budget speech and what some of the factors were that affected the shift in VAT. The announcement of free education, the performance of SARS and the economy and the necessity to keep debt under control made the choices quite difficult to recoup that kind of money.

How fair and accurate is the ANC elective conference likely to be in terms of who it is going to elect as its leader of sentiment in the party? Although the majority of ANC branches have chosen Cyril Ramaphosa as his new leader, the outcome will solely depend on who is in charge of the systems of this organised event. To date the organisers of the event have not yet included all the provinces, and since the number of delegates are unknown, no one really knows what the outcome will be. On Wednesday Gauteng Chief Justice Dunstan Mlambo has ordered Jacob Zuma to pay the costs of his appeal to have Thuli Madonsela's state capture report set aside and it also means (apparently) that Thuli Madonsela's order that the Chief Justice appoints somebody to oversee that an inquiry in to state capture stands and that Zuma has to step aside and allow that to happen.
