There were mixed reactions to President Jacob Zuma’s State of the Nation Speech on Thursday night.  With opposition parties saying President Zuma painted a pretty picture of the country and in reality this was not the case. 

Opposition parties stood together in stating that more job opportunities need to be created in this country especially for the youth. 

DA Leader Helen Zille said the president spoke about five hundred thousand jobs that have been created, however he promised five million jobs.  What we need is economic growth to ensure that we get real jobs.

IFP Leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi said the president promised to create half a million jobs but in fact half a million jobs were lost and President Zuma likes to make promises that he cannot keep.

Cope Leader Mosiuoa Lekota said President Zuma spoke about corruption and that people must be held accountable but he too should be held accountable for Nkandla.

ANC General Secretary Gwede said jobs that are building on 3.5 million jobs which were provided by Public Works and community development work over the past five years, which gives young people access to work and give them the opportunity to be trained and that, is going to help us achieve the target of six million that has bee set.
