Zuma's speech looked like a cut and paste - analyst

Political analyst, Karima Brown, says President Jacob Zuma's State of the Nation Address (Sona) did not address how government will push for radical economic transformation.

Brown says the speech did not give much details regarding economy and job creation.

The printed copy that we got had different fonts. It was littered with spelling mistakes. Even just the way in which the speech was put together looked like a very rushed job.

It also looked like some of the ministers were on the go slow because there was, for example, no figures of what the growth projection is about, the questions around job creation was so vague.
