Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma's State of the Nation on Tuesday was once again underwhelming, United Democratic Movement chief whip Nqabayomzi Kwankwa said.

“I think the entire speech was an underwhelming list of promises once more,” Kwankwa said after the address in Parliament.

“He talks about radical transformation but we didn't hear anything radical in the speech.”

He criticised Zuma for speaking about a minimum wage, saying this was opposite to a call for radical transformation.

He complimented Zuma on his focus on energy and on incentives for the youth.

However, Kwankwa said more work needed to be done in internships for the youth, making sure they did not just “make photocopies and then leave”.
