The DA opposes any potential VAT hike.

VAAL TRIANGLE - The DA is opposing any potential VAT hike. This stance follows speculation that Finance minister, Enoch Godongwana, is considering increasing VAT to address revenue shortfalls due to lower-than-expected economic growth. The party rejects imposing additional financial pressure on already struggling citizens. The DA’s Dion George says government departments are depleting their budgets rapidly, jeopardizing the much-anticipated surplus. George suggests focusing on responsible government spending and expanding the zero-VAT-rated food basket to ease the burden on lower-income households.
