Mmusi Maimane shares his proposed economic recovery plan

Published on

Mmusi Maimane has presented his proposal of an economic recovery plan, following the numerous calls for the ruling party to do so.

Leader of the One South Africa Movement (OSA), Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter on Thursday, 8 October 2020, to propose his economic recovery plan.  His bold plan to turn South Africa’s fortune around is his intervention amid the numerous calls for the government to do so, which have proved futile.

The five-pronged plan tackles matters of governance that have cast a shadow over the current government’s leadership. In addressing the economy, Maimane suggested selling SAA, which has recently suspended its services. Additionally, he proposed revitalising trade between the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

The second pillar addressed employment creation. Besides the already proposed and spoken about tax rebates and deciding if the BBEEE regulations are still applicable, Maimane touched on the youth and creating early employment opportunities. He proposed opportunities which expose the youth to employment before they need to decide on a career path.

The fourth pillar presented Maimane’s propositions on how to better the education system. This is a matter at the heart of OSA, as Maimane has continued to advocate for an overhaul of the entire system to prepare the youth for jobs of the future.

The last pillar provided two poignant pointers on corruption. The first was Maimane’s suggestion to cut down the departments to 10 “superministries.” Another proposal was the suggestion of passing the Direct Election Bill, which would make it possible for an independent candidate to run for office.
