Analysts Mnguni, Mde and Judith February reflect on Ramaphosa's Sona

Political analysts unpack the 2018 State Of the Nation Address with Eusebius McKaiser.

Political analysts say for the first time in four years the State of the Nation Address was delivered with dignity and the respect of Parliament was restored when President Ramaphosa deliver his maiden State of the Nation Address (Sona).

Analysts Lukhona Mnguni, Vukani Mde and Judith February joined Eusebius Mckaiser to discuss the key take aways from the State of the Nation Address.

President Zuma was never a credible messenger, whether he was talking corruption or transformation. There was always this lingering doubt whether this President believed in the words he was saying or whether he had the commitment to governance to actually ensure that things happened.

Judith February, Senior analyst at the Governance & Justice Division at Institute For Security Studies

Vukani Mde says this year's Sona will lead to the debate to focus on the business of government. Mde says Ramaphosa seemed to understand the words which he was saying.

This years speech struck a different tone and has led to a different mood. Over the past four years all that we have been talking about is the performance politics rather than the business of government.

Vukani Mde, Analyst and founder of Lefthook

Lukhona Mnguni says the issue of land expropriation without compensation is going to be a legal process. He says that the ANC has already failed to uphold some of their resolutions from the ANC conference on the land issue.

Cyril Ramaphosa has an interesting position, and that position is to almost de-center the ANC as a place of ideas on what policies ought to inform the state.
