Reading Time: < 1 minute

Democratic Alliance (DA) leader John Steenhuisen has criticised President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address (SONA), adding that the people of South Africa have the power to get back their dream.

He was speaking at the joint debate on the SONA currently underway in the City Hall in Cape Town.

He says, “Every time the lights go out; every time the taps run dry; every time criminals attack us in our homes; every time a small business shuts down; every time a child dies of hunger, it reminds us all of the dream that we have lost.”

“But I have news for the President and his party. The people of South Africa are determined to take our dream back. And this year the people of South Africa will rescue the South African dream by using the most powerful weapon that they have and that is their vote.”
