Cape Town - Freedom Front Plus leader Pieter Mulder on Thursday said he was disappointed with President Jacob Zuma's stance on agriculture during his state-of-the-nation address.

“I think there was a lot of opportunity and he missed it all,” Mulder said.

“There was no detail, it was all old policy.”

The lack of detail left people feeling uncertain, he said.

Mulder did, however, applaud Zuma for putting emphasis on the National Development Plan.

He also said the FF Plus backed the president on his opposition to violent strikes. - Sapa
