SONA’s six million jobs ‘delusional’

Comment on this story


Cape Town - It was “delusional” to tell people about the extended public works programme which would create six million job opportunities, Inkatha Freedom Party leader Mangosuthu Buthelezi said on Thursday.

The programme created temporary jobs but the country needed sustainable jobs, Buthelezi said following President Jacob Zuma's state-of-the-nation address.

He said Zuma mentioned a number of things, including the violence during protests.

Buthelezi claimed the violence was the African National Congress's fault.

“That 1/8violence 3/8 was taught by the ANC... to make the country ungovernable. Who taught people to make petrol bombs? The ANC did,” he said.

Buthelezi called Zuma “Mr Promise”.

He said Zuma liked to make promises but did not follow through.

It was “insulting the intelligence of our people” by making these promises.
