Minister of Finance Tito Mboweni and team have asked for an extension to 28 October flesh out detailed plans to execute the strategy to fix SA, which President Cyril Ramaphosa is scheduled to share.

Covid-19 lockdown rules, which included bizarre regulations against particular types of clothes and a strict ban on tobacco sales, illustrate that the president represents a collective which doesn’t always settle on a rational approach. With a conservative estimate of at least 20% of jobs and businesses gone forever from the SA business landscape, many are praying that reason will prevail in Parliament, though early leaks suggest there is more pain to come for higher income earners.
