In his budget speech in February, Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni, with his trusty aloe ferox at his side said that 2020 was going to be a year for eating pilchards, not steak. And then came the corona virus. Covid 19 has pretty much shredded the treasury’s balance sheet and now the focus is on making sure we have access to funding to help the healthcare system cope, to help the economy cope and to still invest in growth initiatives.
