*Update: Gogos from PMB joined by other pensioners organizations from all over Gauteng held a sit-in at the National Treasury offices in Tshwane. They delivered their demands and more than 51 000 of your signatures to Treasury. They are now waiting for Minister Mboweni to respond ahead of his 2020 Budget Speech.*
We the undersigned call on you to increase the old-age grant for all Mzansi pensioners to R2500 as a start towards equalizing it to the National Minimum Wage. We also call on you to give all pensioners an annual December 13th Cheque.
We join the call with civil society organisations who are advocating that budgets are a political tool and that prioritisation of revenue is required to deal with our most urgent political problems. Government should tax the rich fairly so they can give adequate grants to Mzansi pensioners.
