South Africa
The Finance minister Malusi Gigaba announced that there will be a 15% sales tax increase from 1st April.
Unions are opposing this increase as they say it will mostly affect the poor.
Cosato & SACP are both accusing the ANC of targeting the poor with the sales tax.

Sibanye Gold Ltd.’s is currently in the spot light as they seem to be affected by the strong rand & weak gold price.
This week I will be watching for any reports from Harmony Gold Mine Impala platinum mine.
I will also be monitoring any comments from the two major unions Num & AMCU
