Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma has adequately detailed the main areas of focus for the next five years in his State of the Nation address, ANC treasurer general Zweli Mkhize said on Tuesday night.

“The speech was adequately detailed. He focused on the main things,” he said after Zuma's address in Parliament.

Mkhize said Zuma focused on economic growth, rebuilding local government, and the unrest in the mining industry.

“He spoke about getting involved to stabilise the labour front, and on getting more investments,” said Mkhize.

“He spoke of rebuilding local government where there is corruption. The speech has taken care of all of this.”

Asked why Zuma did not mention Marikana, Mkhize said he had already addressed it in the past and that it was one of many areas of concern.
