EFF leader Julius Malema slammed President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) and said it was not a speech but a dream.
He said Ramaphosa was “daydreaming” and that he must be woken up by South Africans. DA leader Mmusi Maimane also shared the same sentiment and said: “It was all based on a dream of really no tangible plans on how we will get out of this trouble…
Reacting to the speech outside Parliament, Malema said that the ANC has abandoned the agenda to expropriate land without compensation.
“The president said nothing about the land. That which the president said is going to happen is already been happening and has not delivered the land to our people. The ANC has abandoned the agenda to expropriate land without compensation because they make black people stupid,” said Malema.
“They used it during elections, the elections are over. Instead of expropriating land without compensation, the president is daydreaming. The days of dreaming are over, he must be woken up. The man wanted to be president for the last 30 years, he still doesn’t know what he wants to do for South Africa.”
EFF leader Julius Malema said Ramaphosa’s speech said “nothing”.

“If you look at jobs, he says two million jobs over the next 10 years, 200 000 jobs a year. That is what the National Development Plan says. The NDP speaks about 11 million jobs in 2030, so he will create two million jobs by 2029, meaning he has abandoned the NDP,” Malema said.
“The man spoke about one million youth employment initiatives, but according to their own website, only 6,000 of those initiatives were created. The 11 million jobs of the NDP has been abandoned and we have a new plan called dreams. He must be honest that the economy is not growing at the rate we want, therefore I have no idea what to do.
