Live screenings of the SONA to be held

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Pretoria – Live screenings of the State of the Nation Address (SONA) will be held in all nine provinces to ensure that communities are able to join in the important occasion.

There are just two days before President Jacob Zuma presents the SONA to a joint sitting of Parliament at 7pm on Thursday.

During his speech, the President is expected to talk about government’s achievements of the past year and look to the future by presenting a programme for the coming year. This programme sets out government’s plans to address various key government programmes.

The President addresses the nation in his capacity as Head of State, not only as Head of Government.

The SONA is important for all South Africans because it tells us what government’s Programme of Action is for the year ahead. By being aware of what government is doing, everyone can become involved and also take part in government’s plans to build a better life for all.
