South African ministers as well as government employees receive a salary at the end of the month just like any other person with a job. As members of Parliament who serve the public interest of South African residents, their salary is never sacred. Each and every year, the salaries of the president, deputy president, minister, deputy minister, speaker of Parliament, deputy speaker of Parliament, and other members of the national assembly are published in a gazette.
