Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma's State of the Nation Address misled the public, United Democratic Movement leader Bantu Holomisa said on Thursday.

This “misleading” picture needed to be dealt with. Holomisa said Zuma painted a rosy picture of the country, but this was contrary to what was actually seen.

Holomisa said Zuma had no plans to create the number of jobs that he set out to in his address.

“This is an old story, we have heard this noise before,” he told reporters.
