LIVE: State of the Nation Address 2016

President Jacob Zuma will be delivering the State of the Nation Address in Parliament on Thursday evening.

JacaNews SONA

Members of Parliament, dignitaries, guests as well as the media have gathered at the National Assembly where President Jacob Zuma is expected to deliver government's plan for the next year.

This SONA comes on the back of threats by the Economic Freedom Fighters to disrupt the president's speech.

They said at a press conference last week they will demand an answer as to why Nhlanhla Nene was sacked as Finance Minister in December.

The economy is also expected to be high on the agenda with unemployment remaining high, the economy in the doldrums and a recession a real possibility.
