I would like the government to start the much long awaited public infrastructure investment. I think that will go a long way, especially for small building contractors. The government has been saying for years and years that they going to spend a lot of money on infrastructure but that hasn't happened.— Bheki, caller in Krugersdorp
I remember last year, they ordered an airbus with R2 billion, instead of that, now there is a drought that is happening and what I read is that farmers need R1 billion, so instead that R2 billion must just go to the farmers so we can have maize.— Tshepo, caller in Kagiso
