‘As South Africans we should stop overemphasising the bad stuff' - Naledi Pandor

2018 SONA

Live at #SONA2018, Minister Naledi Pandor shares her words of wisdom for South Africans and anticipates Ramaphosa’s speech.

So much political turbulence has occurred over the last six months, and now the 2018 State of the Nation will be addressed by newly elected President Cyril Ramaphosa.

Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor, at the Parliamentary precinct, talks about her excitement for Ramaphosa’s speech, and shares her thoughts on bad politics.

I think that there’s hope, and there are good things happening in the country but the negative often eradicates the positive says Pandor.

I hope the new President infuses a sense of self confidence in the people of our country.

Naledi Pandor, Science and Technology Minister

Pandor says that she doesn’t want the ANC government to give the impression that they can do everything - because they can’t. She adds that you need to get the right people in government.

As South Africans, we should stop overemphasising the really bad stuff, and start making people believe that the good thing is what you do and talk about.

Naledi Pandor, Science and Technology Minister

I want us to be positive, I’m looking forward to the speech tonight says Pandor.
