Analyst Judith February talks to Redi Tlhabi in the parliamentary precinct in the build-up to Sona. February says the ANC January 8 statement is usually a precursor to the President's State of the Nation.
She says when ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe was asked about radical economic transformation at the press conference he said the ANC would have to dig deeper to find the real meaning of that term.
She says it will be interesting to see how the President frames this and it is surely a response to the EFF and its more radical policies around issues about land.
The issue of land will be an important part of Sona this year.
