While Mogajane says this was a necessary step, he warns it's not a long-term solution.

"The solution is to grow this economy. Let's be serious about structural reform programmes that the minister was talking about," he said.

"Let's be sure about what we want to do in luring foreign investment to our country and ensure that we create the jobs that we need."
