Tito Mboweni warns of imminent fiscal crisis

Published on

Tito Mboweni was one of the speakers at the Stellenbosch University’s centenary webinar, where he warned of an imminent fiscal crisis due to the widening gap between revenue and expenditure.

Minister of Finance, Tito Mboweni’s address on Friday, 9 October 2020, at Stellenbosch University’s centenary webinar was shared via a thread on Twitter by the National Treasury. The post revealed some of the concerns that Mboweni raised ahead of delivering his eagerly awaited Medium Term Budget Policy Statement.

A point shared by the thread was the minister’s fears of an imminent fiscal crisis. The minister based his fears on the growing gap between the country’s expenditure and revenue.

“Non-residents are selling South African bonds at an alarming rate,” Mboweni was quoted as saying. However, instead of proposing a way forward, the minister projected that the fiscal crisis might occur between 2024 and 2025.
