JOHANNESBURG - Just hours before Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni delivers his budget speech, research has emerged citing South Africans to be in a troubled state.

Ipsos Pulse of the People report outlines the main concerns affecting people which include job losses and service delivery.

“Currently only three in every ten (29%) South Africans, 18 years and older say that the country is going in the right direction. However, we have come a long way since November 2017, when two thirds (66%) of adult South Africans believed the country was moving in the wrong direction,” Ipsos said in the report.
