President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to respond to the debate on his State of the Nation Address (Sona), where opposition parties condemned him for weaving dreams rather than spelling out concrete plans.

Ramphosa sat through a 10-hour joint sitting of both houses of Parliament yesterday, listening as opposition speakers dissected his speech, calling it full of vision, but with little substance.

Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has accused Ramaphosa of avoiding the land question and urged him to come clean on the donations that his party presidential campaign received from Bosasa.

Democratic Alliance chief whip John Steenhuisen said people wanted to hear about plans not dreams.
Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula said the party had never claimed to be perfect and owned up to its mistakes.
