The United Democratic Movement says it is deeply concerned about the state of the economy.
UDM president Bantu Holomisa says the Reserve Bank should cut interest rates drastically to kick-start the economy. He says high interest rates are frustrating attempts to create jobs.
Holomisa has called for a national economic indaba to develop a strategy that has the support and approval of all South Africans.
The Reserve Bank’s Monetary Policy committee will make an interest rate announcement tomorrow afternoon.
