The Democratic Alliance (DA) says it will not rest in its pursuit to pressure Finance minister, Enoch Gondongwana, and hold him to account for dismissing the plight of South African households.
In his response to a DA Parliamentary question, the minister confirmed that he has zero intention of convening a panel that would analyze the expansion of the zero-Value-Added Tax rated food basket.
The DA’s Dion George says the party proposes that government drops VAT on more food items commonly purchased by the poorest 50% of households.
