Presidency briefs media on Phase Two of Presidential Employment Stimulus, 14 Oct

13 Oct 2021

The Minister in the Presidency, Mr Mondli Gungubele, together with the Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure, Ms Patricia De Lille and the Minister of Employment and Labour, Mr Thulas Nxesi, will lead a media briefing to reflect on the outcomes of Phase One of the Presidential Employment Stimulus and further outline Phase Two.

The Presidential Employment Stimulus was first announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa in October 2020 as part of government’s response to the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The media briefing will take place as follows:

Date: Thursday, 14 October 2021
Time: 09:00 - 11:00
Venue: Ronnie Mamoepa Press Room, Tshedimosetso House, 1035 Francis Baard Street, Hatfield, Pretoria.
