The budget speech has been delivered.
All scenarios have been considered.
As expected the rich are going to pay more.
All to benefit the poor.
No increase in the Value Added Tax rate.
I am sure that was our finance minister's mandate.
Investors will be fleeced.
As the dividend tax has increased.
Sin tax was expected.
The drinkers and smokers will be affected.
But the fuel levy will hit all of us.
Whether you travel in a car or a bus.
I hope the government spends it well.
Only the future will tell.
Hopefully they do not go on a nuclear spending spree.
After all our money does not grow on a tree.
