Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) is deeply disappointed with the Mid-Term Budget Speech 2017 as it shies away from real and genuine issues instead he was demonstrating a bold political posture and arrogance.

The PAC expected Malusi Gigaba to make pronouncements on Free Education instead he never uttered a single word concerning our poor student. The PAC calls for Minister of Finance intervention in Tertiary Education crises, we have to address those challenges now to prepare our student for next year.


We are not informed on how the state SAA going to be rescued or restructured going forward. Beneficiaries of social welfare are worried and concerned on the issue of their payment on the 1st April 2018 which should be handled by SA Post Office. The minister missed an opportunist to address the South Africans. His speech was empty with bombastic terms.

We continue to hear the usual rhetoric or claim of fighting corruption. The same chief corrupts are the same ones claiming to do something against corruption. We know how many public servants have committed corrupt activities while their party defend such misconduct which equals to treason in any sober country.


That Mid-Term Budget 2017 speech was empty and directionless. It is not different to what previous political heads of finance have been postulating since 1994. We know that anything that was presented today was not pro-people, it was not genuine and seeks to put the blame on the global economic challenges.
