Sugar tax is a revenue grab that will have zero health benefit to SA and may worsen socio-economic circumstances

Sep 14, 2016
14 September 2016 - A report released by the IRR this morning shows that the proposed sugar tax will do almost nothing to improve the health of South Africans. It is rather an attempt to raise more money by a desperate government that is running short of revenue. The tax will place more financial pressure on already stressed households and worsen their socio-economic position.
