JOHANNESBURG - DA leader Mmusi Maimane says the party will soon march to the National Treasury against the increase on VAT and transport levies because they are regressive and anti-poor policies.

Maimane launched a national petition in Soshanguve yesterday opposing the VAT increase.

He encouraged community members to make their voices heard by signing the petition which he will table in Parliament.

Maimane says a VAT increase fuels inequality in the country.

“We are not marching for ourselves, we are marching for poor people, we are marching against this government that has failed to manage this economy.”
