Send your points to Pravin

By Staff Writer

As is done every year Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan has invited all South Africans to send their tips on what they would like to see him address in the country’s budget. The Minister will present the 2014 Budget to Parliament on 26 February 2014 at 2pm.


“The Budget Tips is an on-going campaign to garner citizens’ views on economic matters. The public is encouraged to send through tips on matters relating to tax, how government can improve public finance management, boost economic growth and address unemployment,” said the Ministry of Finance in a statement.


Tips can be sent through the National Treasury’s website. They can also be faxed through to 012 315 5126 or post them to Private Bag X115,  Pretoria, 0001. Alternatively, you can send your pointers to Pravin through his official Facebook page.


Justmoney would also like to hear your views on how Gordhan could improve South Africa’s economy. If you put your recommendations down on our Facebook page we will publish the best ones on our website.


The voice of the people
Gordhan reminded the public to make their comments on the 10 January on Facebook and some have already made recommendations on his Facebook page. Here are just some of the points that have been made:


Howard Prinsloo: “Put the old people and social grants up to R2000 they cannot live on R1260. The fuel is up and food is going up and the e-tolls please think about that.”


Joan Gemmell Budricks: “Increase interest rates on Pensions and Savings for Retired Persons , we don't want to become a burden to the state .We should be rewarded,for taking care of ourselves.”


Kabelo Victor Mongale: “Let all govt workers buy their own cars and houses because they earn a salary just like us ordinary workers!”


Shaun Naidu: “Engage with entrepreneurs like myself who have ventures with 5 year projections to make R1.2 billion in net profit and create 1000's of jobs but can't access funding because funding institutes are not pro-entrepreneurship.”


Themba Azania Mbuzi: “Sell Nkandla! And all those luxury cars the SA government owns.”
