Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane shares his reactions to President Cyril Ramaphosa's State of the Nation Address.

The 2019 State of the Nation Address delivered in the National Assembly at Parliament by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Thursday evening has been criticised by analysts for being low on details and full of dream.

Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane shares his reactions to the speech with 702's Bongani Bingwa.

South Africans are in deep pain. When you look at the basic facts, if 10 million South Africans are unemployed, if more than half the young people cannot find jobs, this is a crisis. They are not going to wake up and dream again.

Mmusi Maimane, Leader - Democratic Alliance

No one in the world is dreaming. Every leader in the world right now is talking about how do we implement a plan and how do we reform society.

Mmusi Maimane, Leader - Democratic Alliance

Maimane says Ramaphosa missed an opportunity to provide a reform agenda.

He says the president lacks three key things - the fiscus is under enormous pressure, he does not have credible people in government, and he does not have policy.

Yesterday the president behaved like a magician trying to put on a show when the rest of us know he is without tricks really.

Mmusi Maimane, Leader - Democratic Alliance

Affirming the Constitution is not a dream. It is not saying anything new....we cannot set the bar so low that when the president says the things in the Constitution then we say that's decisive.

Mmusi Maimane, Leader - Democratic Alliance

He says the things Ramaphosa addressed should have already been done and time has come to talk about reform.
