Cape Town - With hours to go before President Cyril Ramaphosa delivers his State of the Nation Address in Parliament at 7pm on Thursday, we asked IOL social media followers what burning issues they would like him to address.
Here are 20 of the answers we received:
* Economy: Reduce the unrealistic exorbitant salaries paid to ministers and all other govt officials from national to local to reduce expenditure.
* Better pensions and disability allowance. How can people survive with R1500 per month 😢😭😢😭😢😭
* The best thing he can do, is tell the truth. No false promises. We'd have more respect for him. Give us the bad news - 95 % of his address and good news 5%.
