#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.

Both Houses of Parliament continued with submissions following the State of the Nation address.

The online audience for the State of the Nation address peaked at over 10 000 viewers watching live (and over 100 000 views in total), the first day of debate peaked at over 5 000 (40 000 total views) while today the views were under 3 000.

The debate began on 17 February and included submissions by Mmusi Maimane, Julius Malema, Mangosuthu Buthelezi and Pravin Gordhan.
