Cape Town - There was nothing new in President Jacob Zuma's state-of-the-nation address, Pan Africanist Congress leader Alton Mpheti said on Tuesday.

“What the president said is what he said in the last state-of-the-nation,” Mpheti said after the address in Parliament.

“There are no improvements.”

He said Zuma had reduced the number of jobs promised and brought up the issue of land claims again, but with no real solution.

“He didn't do half the claims (promised). I don't know where he is taking us.”

He said Zuma was not moving the country in a better direction.
