Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan is set to present #Budget2016 in the National Assembly amid unfavourable economic conditions worldwide.
Redi Tlhabi opened the lines for listeners to share what they expect to hear from Gordhan's highly-anticipated speech.
Listen to the conversation below:
I would like the government to start the much long awaited public infrastructure investment. I think that will go a long way, especially for small building contractors. The government has been saying for years and years that they going to spend a lot of money on infrastructure but that hasn't happened.— Bheki, caller in Krugersdorp
I remember last year, they ordered an airbus with R2 billion, instead of that, now there is a drought that is happening and what I read is that farmers need R1 billion, so instead that R2 billion must just go to the farmers so we can have maize.— Tshepo, caller in Kagiso
