EXCLUSIVE: Fewer than half of cabinet ministers confirm salary cuts
Ramaphosa has pledged that he and his cabinet will take a pay cut and donate the funds to help with Covid-19 relief
Three months after President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that he and his cabinet would take a pay cut and donate the funds to help with Covid-19 relief, it is still not clear whether the entire executive has followed through.
Fewer than half — 13 out of 28 — of ministers responded to Business Day when asked last week if they had made the contributions. Those who replied said yes or explained that they had either made a voluntary donation or had their salaries deducted.
