    Today marks World Stroke Day

    Today marks World Stroke Day, to raise awareness about the serious nature and high rates of stroke, prevention and treatment of the condition. We are reminded that a stroke can happen to anyone, at anytime, anywhere, and that 1 in 4 adults will have a stroke in their lifetime. Such is the story of my next guest, who leads a healthy lifestyle but a few weeks ago, death came knocking on his door, but he lives to tell the tale.

    Bongani speaks to Josh Lindberg, theatre producer and director.

    The nuts & bolts of the budget

    The nuts & bolts of the budget

    Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni, painted a bleak picture of the economy, with a country in the grips of a severe recession. Our national debt is expected to rise to 82% of GDP, while tax revenue shrinks.

    The Minister announced spending cuts, a wage freeze on the cards, and SAA gets more money at the expense of other departments, which case cuts amounting to R7 billion, a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul. Is this a budget that will set us on the right path to economic recovery?

    Bongani speaks to Kevin Lings, Chief Economist at Stanlib.

    Public servant react to mid-term budget policy statement

    Public servant react to mid-term budget policy statement

    According to the mid-term budget delivered by Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni,

    Public sector remuneration for some 1.3 million civil servants accounts for over 96% of the increase in spending, with public wage bill accounting for 40% of total government expenditure.

    Just as government reneged on its 2018 wage agreement with civil servants, by not implementing a wage hike in the final year, government is now proposing another wage freeze for the next three years.The Public Servants Association says the Finance Minister’s statements on public service salaries are an “outright declaration of war against labour” in the public service.

    Bongani speaks to Reuben Maleka, Assistant General Manager at the Public Servants Association.
