Inkunzi Investments CEO Owen Nkomo gives his reaction to Finance minister Tito Mboweni's supplementary budget.

Finance Minister Tito Mboweni delivered a supplementary Budget speech in Parliament on Wednesday afternoon and says the projected total consolidated Budget spending, including debt service costs, would exceed R2 trillion for the first time ever.

Ray White speaks to Inkunzi Investments CEO Owen Nkomo on what he thought of the overall budget.

Nkomo says rating agencies will continue to have a negative outlook on the country.
