Reflections on the State of the Nation Address

You are invited to a public forum about the reflections of the State of the Nation Address (SONA).


This forum will take place after President Zuma's address on 09 February 2017. The SONA marks the opening of parliament for 2017 and sets the tone for the annual post-SONA seminars.

The key questions will be:“ What should the president have said in his address” and “What can citizens and civil society do to achieve success outside of the failures of the SONA?”

Join us together with respected political analyst Aubrey Matshiqi, for an insightful dialogue as we engage in challenging conversations about our beloved country.
