The National Education Health and Allied Workers Union said the State of the Nation Address failed to give a coherent programmatic vision of fighting the triple crisis of unemployment, poverty and inequality. 

President Jacob Zuma delivered his 8th Sona amongst disruption and chaos in the National Assembly. 

However Nehawu has strongly condemned the disruptions by members of the Economic Freedom Fighters.

 Nehawu members working in Parliament withdrew its services for the Sona due to management issues over their 13th cheque.

Nehawu Spokesperson Sizwe Pamla said 2013 the President said he is going to appoint a commission that was supposed to look the condition of public servants.

Pamla said Two years later he is yet to report back.

Pamla said we find this totally unacceptable as we all agreed that it is priority for the working class because they don’t have access to universal health care.

Pamla said The white paper has not come up the President has said nothing and we feel the President was distracted in his State of Nation Address by the issues of electricity in load shedding.

“We feel that the SONA was more of a crisis management speech than a vision coming from the head of state of how will move forward” Pamla added.
