Cape Town - Finance Minister Tito Mboweni is set to deliver his Budget speech on Wednesday in Parliament.
Pressure mounts as he is expected to address pressing matters such as increasing debt, high unemployment and State-owned entities.
In his Medium Term Budget Policy Statement last October, Mboweni said the country had to start prioritising expenditure.
Political parties have called on Mboweni to prioritise spending in the budget and unemployment and debt.
The budget speech process can be difficult to unpack so consultant Zelna Jansen has broken down the process ahead of the much-anticipated Budget speech.
