SA Paralympic heroes Mahlangu, Weyers and du Preez rejoice after striking gold in Tokyo and Surprise tax boost for South Africa.

South Africa landed four gold medals at the Tokyo Paralympics through long-jumper Ntando Mahlangu, 400m runner Anrune Weyers and Pieter du Preez in the mens H1 cycling. 

Weyers, who fought off Covid-19 before she could get ready for the games, steamed to a win in the 400m T45 in a time of 56.05 while Mahlangu saved his best for absolute last when his world record 7.17m was enough to get him the T63 long jump gold. Watch the video here.

Pieter du Preez (43:49.41) won the gold medal in the men’s H1 cycling time trial to claim South Africa’s 4th medal of the Games.

Treasury has published its updated monthly government revenue and expenditure data, showing stronger than expected tax revenue. Gross government tax revenue amounted to R377 billion for the April to June 2021 period, up 56.2% versus the corresponding period in 2020.
