Press Release: CIVIL SOCIETY HUMAN RIGHTS BUDGET
PEOPLE SHOULD BE AT THE HEART OF MINISTER’S BUDGET, NOT COST CUTTING
Minister Malusi Gigaba delivered the Medium Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS) at National Parliament tomorrow. The MTBPS is a crucial part of government’s budget cycle, and will include all adjustments and reallocations to the national budget. It is vital that the minister does not announce any cost-cutting measures which might see the rights of South Africans, and especially vulnerable groups, impeded on.
