Ekurhuleni budget maintains ‘pro-poor’stance

in an attempt to maintain a pro-poor stance on public spending aimed at improving social development, the City of Ekurhuleni will inject R3.5-billion of its 2016 budget into its community empowerment package, Mintirho Ya Vula Vula.

Tabling the Budget Vote for the city on Thursday, MMC for finance Councillor Moses Makwakwa noted that Ekurhuleni had been experienced a “consistent decline” in economic growth and that unemployment remained “stubbornly firm” among young people.

He added that the city’s population was estimated to grow by an average of 2.5% between 2014 and 2019.
