JOHANNESBURG – President Jacob Zuma’s continued leadership of the government is being debated on a number of political fronts on Friday.
It is the last day of an extended Cabinet lekgotla and the question on everyone’s mind is who will deliver the State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Thursday.
Parliament says the show must go on, with whoever is head of state on Thursday addressing the nation.
Opposition parties meet on Friday to discuss their game plan. Parties including the EFF, the UDM and the DA have called for Zuma to be replaced before the address.
