Opposition parties react to Pres Ramaphosa's SONA
President Cyril Ramaphosa says 2019 should be a year of reflection for South Africa on the progress made and mistakes that were committed in recent years.
Ramaphosa was delivering his second State Of the Nation Address in parliament on Thursday. He says South Africans have embraced government’s message of renewal following tumultuous years.
Here is how some opposition parties react to the President speech:
Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane has described President Cyril Ramaphosa’s speech as “a state of no action.” Maimane says the speech contained a lot of promises.
Meanwhile, Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says Ramaphosa has plagiarised the EFF manifesto.
