The National Budget made easier

Minister launches
https://vulekamali.gov.za/
The Vulekamali portal, launched by Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba on Tuesday, will make
information on the Budget more accessible to ordinary South Africans.
The online portal presents information in a simplified format and shows members of the
public how public resources are generated and used.
The Minister launched the portal during a media briefing at the Imbizo Centre in Cape
Town on Tuesday, a day before he is expected to table the Budget Speech in Parliament.
“We would seek to continue making National Treasury accessible to the broader sections
of South African society. That it doesn’t belong among the elite only, but it must be accessible

The deceased is a 29-year-old man from ga-Mashamothane village near Burg-

A case of murder and two counts of malicious damage to property were opened.
The suspects involved in this said matter are unknown and there is no arrest as yet.
The police investigations are still continuing.

On Wednesday this week, the previously

Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba.
The focus of the budget fell on rebuilding
and restoring growth and confidence in chal-

as “tough but hopeful”. One of the main
changes that the public will have to deal with
is the increase of VAT from 14% to 15% as of
1 April 2018. This is the first time that VAT is
increased since 1993.
