Director-general Dondo Mogajane reflects on the R70 billion loan granted to the country by the International Monetary Fund.

National Treasury on Monday said that the multi-billion-rand loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) would be used to forge a new economy and mitigate further harm from the devastating coronavirus pandemic.

The monetary fund approved the country's request for a $4.3 billion loan which is around R70 billion when translated.

National Treasury director-general Dondo Mogajane speaking to Bongani Bingwa about the loan says South Africa will live up to the expectations and the commitments that it has made in getting this loan.

South African should be comfortable that we didn't put the country at risk and the sovereignty of the country is intact in terms of the agreement with the IMF.
