The State of the Nation Address (Sona) to be delivered by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Thursday evening, is one that reports suggest as the most important speech by any head of state since 1994.
What will the president say about state-owned enterprises?
Will he have solutions for Eskom , South African Airways, Denel or the Post Office?
Lenomo Strategic Advisory organisational strategist Thabang Motsohi says there is a rational behind why South Africa has SOEs.
He joins Bongani Bingwa to discuss the state of SOEs in the country.
Most these SOEs were inherited from the past and there was a purpose for which those SOEs were established. We have not looked into them as to whether they are relevant to our situation. We believe in magic solutions in South Africa because we don't want to look at the hard facts and learn from experience.— Thabang Motsohi, Organisational strategist - Lenomo Strategic Advisory
