COSATU has taken to Twitter to announce the date for the delivery of the Economic Recovery Plan by President Cyril Ramaphosa, however, there has been no formal word from the presidency.
The Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) took to Twitter on Thursday, 15 October 2020, to share that President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to deliver the Economic Recovery Plan address this evening. The post merely announced the date and did not reveal a scheduled time. The address has been a much-anticipated one, which has been called for by movements such as Mmusi Maimane’s One South Africa Movement and Herman Mashaba’s Action SA.
The announcement of the date from the tripartite alliance member is surprising, considering that there has been no formal word from the presidency or the government. Moreover, the Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni has reportedly requested a postponement of his medium-term budget address, which was set to pave the way for the president’s address.
