Johannesburg - President Cyril Ramaphosa faced tough questions during a live Twitter session with South Africans on Monday.
Ramaphosa insisted on plans to reduce the size of his Cabinet, strengthening the education system and pushing through with the land reform programme.
The president also said he will ensure that there was an increase in the building of more houses for the poor and get more youth in the labour market.
On land reform Ramaphosa said the panel, chaired by his deputy David Mabuza, will soon table a report.
The president also said the issues of housing need and other needs in Alexandra have to be met.
