The impact of recent electricity tariffs hikes on consumer pockets

In this edition of the Business Day Spotlight, we talk about the impact of recent electricity tariffs hikes on SA consumers.

Our host Mudiwa Gavaza is joined by Rob Gwerengwe, CEO of the middle market segment at FNB.

The discussion focuses on the effects of the recent 15% increase in electricity tariffs on SA households, general effects of the pandemic on consumer spending in SA, people leaning more on credit to finance day to day expenses and the growth of the gig economy as families and individuals look to supplement their incomes.
