Additionally, ANC’s Angela Thokozile “Thoko” Didiza has assumed the role of Speaker of the National Assembly (Parliament), with Dr Annelie Lotriet from the Democratic Alliance (DA) elected as Deputy Speaker.

The office of the Presidency has gazetted the approved salary hikes for ministers, deputy ministers, members of parliament and other legislators in South Africa.

How much do you think they earn?

The salaries will kick in retroactively from 1 April 2024, and reflect a 2.5% increase—well below inflation.

According to the presidency, the total annual package includes the following elements:

  • A basic salary component equal to 60% of the total, which constitutes the pensionable salary.
  • R120,000 per annum is included in the basic salary, equating to a monthly allowance of R10,000, which is excluded from income and, therefore, does not appear on the IRP 5 certificate.
  • An employer’s pension benefit contribution equal to 22.5% of pensionable salary.
  • A flexible portion for the remaining amount of the total.

These elements apply to all the salaries listed below.

Despite arguably low increases, South Africa’s cabinet ministers and parliamentarians are still bona fide millionaires.
