2018 SONA

EWN reporter Clement Manyathela and political analyst Dumisani Hlophe give their thoughts ahead of SONA 2018

After walking out of Parliament on Thursday before new President Cyril Ramaphosa was sworn in, the EFF have said that they will listen to his State of the Nation Address (Sona).

EWN political reporter, Clement Manyathela says that there is a lot of pressure on Ramaphosa, particularly with calls for a cabinet reshuffle.

Manyathela says that there is a lot of pressure from the EFF on cleaning out cabinet.

South Africans need to hear the State of the Nation address. But these are the things he is going to have to do, and firing incompetent ministers is one of the things.

Clement Manyathela, EWN political reporter

Listen to the full conversation below:

Dumisani Hlophe, political analyst at the Unisa School of Governance says that when it comes to Ramaphosa's cabinet, he must be guided by good governance and clean government. He must build some kind of unity, like the Mandela style of leadership and deal with corruption.

Hlophe says that people will be watching Ramaphosa closely, because he has been with the ANC throughout all the social ills that have taken place under there leadership.

We must be careful, because you can change the oil in your car, but it remains that car - it doesn't necessarily change that car. The danger of out socio-politics in this country is that people tend to focus on individuals, rather than the collective of the organisation of which people come from.

Clement Manyathela, EWN political reporter
