BUDGET: Social grants increased by small amounts

# Finance minister Enoch Godongwana says to keep pace with inflation and increase access, permanent social grants will be increased. In his budget speech he announced an increase of 100-rand to the old age, war veterans, disability and care dependency grants. This amount will be divided into 90-rand effective from April and another 10-rand effective from October. The foster care grant will increase by 50-rand and the child support grant by 20-rand.
