JOHANNESBURG - We asked the Twitter-verse if Gigaba's Mid Term Budget Policy Statement will inspire confidence in the South African economy and the tweeters have had their say. 

Following a poll conducted by Business Report, 64% of those who voted believed that the Finance Minister will not inspire the SA economy, while a mere 16% of voters think he can. The remaining 20% stated they are unsure if Gigaba's speech will inspire any confidence in the economy at all.
