CAPE TOWN –  Finance Minister Tito Mboweni announced his medium-term budget policy statement (MTBPS) on Wednesday in Parliament. 

The main points that were best received by most of South Africans were the fact that  Value-added tax (VAT) on white bread flour, white cake flour and sanitary pads would be zero-rated from April 1 next year. 

Mboweni also added that visa requirements would be made easier for people with skills to work in South Africa.

However, some points in his speech such as the e-tolls and the extra help for SAA ( South African Airways) were not well-received.
