The Democratic Alliance said President Jacob Zuma left out the most important things in his speech during the State of the Nation Address on Thursday, such as the Job creation and youth unemployment.

The DA issued a statement today that said millions of youth were waiting on President to announce the implementation of the Youth Wage Subsidy, but got nothing more than vague assurances.

“President Zuma has passed up a golden opportunity to present us with a bold new plan. Instead, all he gave us was an uninspired version of last year’s SONA, which provides no hope for South Africans crying out for real leadership. All we heard was more of the same empty promises we have heard before” said Lindiwe Mazibuko in statement.

 President Jacob Zuma said
there is an amount of R3 billion from the job fund, which has been approved for job creation.

The fund will help the youth to get jobs.

Government said there are various programmes aimed at assisting the youth in getting jobs.
