Cape Town - At 14:00 on Wednesday all eyes will be on Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan as he delivers his budget speech. Or will they?

According to the experts at Fin24 the 2013 fiscal year has been a challenging one for government and indeed South Africa as a whole.  

All attention will be on what the finance minister has to say in his 2014 budget speech in respect of how he intends to address the challenges that the country faces.

Here are five reasons why you should be watching the budget speech:

Reason 1: Tim Harris, DA finance spokesperson.

Reason 2: Mr. Harris

Reason 3: Hot Tim!

Reason 4: Tiiiiiiimmmm! Harrrriiiisss!

Reason 5: This budget is being delivered in an election year, the fifth democratic elections since 1994. With the current world economic situation and unique challenges within South Africa the suggested solutions to some of SA’s biggest financial problems need to be very carefully balanced.  Of course people will not listen to the 2014 budget speech purely to hear how these challenges are addressed. People will also listen for budget allocations and any changes on taxes.
