SONA: FFPlus rejects ‘brag speech’

Cape Town - Freedom Front Plus leader Pieter Mulder on Thursday labelled President Jacob Zuma's State of the Nation Address as a “brag speech” with little focus on the future.

“It was a brag speech focused on the elections, I would have liked to hear more about the future,” he said.

He welcomed Zuma's announcement of a central tender board to tackle corruption, but was worried this was motivated by the wish to woo voters ahead of the general elections in May.

“If it's such a good country, why are all the municipalities burning?” he asked.
