Meanwhile, the unemployment social relief grant of R350 is expected to cost Treasury R27 billion.

Government has announced the return of this grant following its discontinuation earlier this year when the country moved to lighter lockdown restrictions.

Mboweni says it is still not clear where the money will come from but Treasury will have to dig around in the system and make it happen.
