#SONA2015: The President replies

President Zuma has listened to praise and criticism of his address and his government, today he responded and while the debate will continue about the substance of his speech, his tone and delivery did not suggest this was a "broken man" as DA leader Mmusi Maimane declared in his response to the State of the Nation address.

The online live audience peaked just under 5 000 which is still half the live audience that was watching during the State of the Nation address.
