Treasury has confirmed that the head of their budget department, Michael Sachs, has resigned.

This follows after alleged interference from Jacob Zuma’s side with treasury matters.

Claims that the finance minister, Malusi Gigaba, wants to hijack the treasury now seems to be increasingly real.

Meanwhile, Gigaba is pressing for parliamentarians and ministers to receive salary hikes.
