Clear plans for a way forward for South Africa.
That's what the Democratic Alliance is looking for from the President Cyril Ramaphosa in his third State of the Nation Address (Sona) of the year on Thursday.
The official opposition's chief whip John Steenhuisen says Ramaphosa could get himself into trouble if he simply repeats the promises made during his previous two Sonas.
I think the last two Sonas have been characterised by the president announcing virtuous ends on job creation, cleaning up corruption, on fixing the economy - the results have been staggered and stuttered, to say the least.— John Steenhuisen, Chief whip - Democratic Alliance
With ongoing factional battles within the African National Congress, Steenhuisen says it's crucial Ramaphosa show there's only one leader within the party.
Not only for the country but also to show that he's in charge of his own party and that he is setting the direction and he's not being led by the nose by the Magashule faction.— John Steenhuisen, Chief whip - Democratic Alliance
