President Bola Tinubu halted the subsidy at in mid-2023 to help government repair its finances. However, the removal and a devaluation of the naira, led fuel prices to more than triple, fanning inflation and protests. The IMF said it expects the fuel subsidy to be phased out within two years, as a cash-transfer programme was implemented to cushion poor consumers. Photograph: Bloomberg

It has also raised a number of questions about the state – including the state of safety – of South Africa’s building and construction industry.
