The African Christian Democratic Party said President Jacob Zuma must concentrate on the greatest challenges facing South Africa which is unemployment, poverty and inequality, when he delivers his State of the Nation Address this evening. 

ACDP President Kenneth Meshoe said in a statement that the President will need to indicate what steps are being taken to urgently implement the National Development Plan.

ACDP Spokesperson Keeno Petersen said President Zuma will also need to address the underlying causes of widespread service delivery protests, such as corrupt officials, the lack of housing, water and sanitation.

Petersen said these services delivery protests are often accompanied by violence and destruction of property.  Attention will also have to be given to the underhand approach by the public order policing unit which has resulted in people loosing their lives.
