Business Unity South Africa (Busa) has once again called for President Cyril Ramaphosa to make tough decisions on the crisis the country is facing when he delivers his State of the Nation Address (Sona) on Thursday evening.
Bongani Bingwa speaks to the organisations' acting chief executive officer Cas Coovadia to reflect on the upcoming Sona.
We have indicated that the country is in crisis, we have a socio-economic and a political crisis in our country. We are at a stage now where hard decisions are necessary.— Cas Coovadia, Acting CEO - Business Unity South Africa
The president needs to acknowledge the sort of crisis South Africa is in and he needs to put forward a creation of an environment for investment both locally and globally, he adds.
So that we can get our country onto a global sustainable growth path. We need to take some hard decisions on state owned enterprises. We need to decide as to which SOEs are strategically important for our country and make sure that those are fixed.— Cas Coovadia, Acting CEO - Business Unity South Africa
