Parliament - President Cyril Ramaphosa is delivering his second State of the Nation Address in Parliament.
Pressure is mounting on Ramaphosa to deliver a speech that will settle the markets, attract investments and fight corruption.
Opposition parties said the country was at a crossroads and required decisive leadership to rescue it.
They wanted the economy to grow above 1% in order to create more jobs.
Millions of South Africans remained unemployed, and Statistics SA has said the unemployment rate was above 27%.
However, opposition parties said that despite mountains of evidence in various commissions of inquiry, Ramaphosa had not acted and brought top ANC politicians who have been implicated to justice.
