Eusebius McKaiser describes the president as having 'a weird smirk' as he was talking about the dreams during Sona.

Dreams, dreams and dreams.

Was President Cyril Ramaphosa's State of the Nation Address full of dreams?

Eusebius McKaiser says a lot of people are stuck on the last three pages of the speech which spoke of dreams the president has for the country.

Eusebius says if former president Jacob Zuma is the baseline for excellence than the Sona by Ramaphosa was good.

READ: Sona 'encouraging', but South Africans need details of an action plan

I genuinely don't know what to make of the Sona. There is a part of me that wants to be generous and kind and say it was the best Sona yet, it was better than the guy before.

And there is a part of me that says if Jacob Zuma is your baseline for anything in life then obviously you are brilliant so we can't use his speech as a baseline.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

However, Eusebius says we should allow the president to dream a bit and maybe he will come back to reality soon.

Another part of me that wants to say let the guys dream. Haven't we been wanting a dreamer since Madiba?

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

The problem is, President Ramaphosa wasn't convinced about his own dream. He had a weird smirk as he was talking about the dreams.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

He didn't own his dream. He wasn't convinced about his own dream.
