As President Jacob Zuma prepares to address the nation on Thursday evening in the annual State of the Nation Address (Sona) in Parliament, lobby group Save SA's executive secretary Lawson Naidoo talks to Kieno Kammies about the group's planned alternative.
We're going to be organising a real State of the Nation Address.— Lawson Naidoo, Save SA
It is taking place on Wednesday 8 February at 10 am at St George's Cathedral in Cape Town.
The aim of this event is to provide an opportunity for ordinary South Africans and in particular younger South Africans to give a perspective of their daily reality, of what the real state of this country is.— Lawson Naidoo, Save SA
What are the challenges and issues we face? Rather than the same tired rhetoric we will undoubtedly get from the President on Thursday, where he will evade the most important issues.— Lawson Naidoo, Save SA
