Cape Town - President Cyril Ramaphosa has made bold promises to take the country forward within the next five years.
The plans Ramaphosa outlined tackled some of the severe challenges hobbling the country, such as poverty, inequality and unemployment.
“No person in South Africa will go hungry, our economy will grow at a much faster rate than our population and two million more young people will be in employment,” Ramaphosa said.
Delivering his third State if the Nation Address on Thursday evening, Ramaphosa said that government is creating these goals so that the decisions they make are bolder and they act with greater urgency.
Ramaphosa spoke at great length about the capacity of the country's hospitals and clinics and promised a comprehensive strategy to tackle shortcomings.
