TSHWANE — Cabinet, according to Mondli Gungubele, is crossing its fingers before the second quarter GDP figures are released on Tuesday.

Gungubele says it would be a big problem if the economy had gotten worse. During the Cabinet lekgotla, he also talked about how the country feels about immigration.

Unemployment, crime, inequality, and especially the long-lasting energy crisis are all problems that are slowing economic growth right now.

But the release of the second quarterly GDP numbers could add to the government's worries.   
It is expected to show that the economy is doing poorly.

The economy and unemployment will be discussed at the cabinet lekgotla. Something important that the Minister in the Presidency says is a big worry.

Gungubele said, "For example, Economic and Physical Outlook, you know that we reported positive signs for the economy in the first quarter. One

of the reasons we are worried is that the top economies have tightened their financial gear in terms of interest rates. "
