There was nothing new in President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address (SONA), delivered in Parliament in Cape Town on Thursday, 20 June 2019, South Africa’s opposition parties said.

On Thursday, 20 June 2019, leader of Democratic Alliance (DA), Mmusi Maimane, described Ramaphosa’s speech as “a state of no action and containing a lot of empty promises, a pipe dream. ” “It was all based on a dream of really no tangible plans on how we will get out of this trouble in the next five years.

We should have seen more reforms, and none were forthcoming,” Maimane said.
