South African President Cyril Ramaphosa will this week deliver the first-ever State of the Nation Address outside of the parliamentary precinct. Eyewitness News reports that he is expected to try to deliver a message of hope for South Africans a month after the devastating fire that destroyed huge parts of the National Assembly. The address will also coincide with the anniversary of former President Nelson Mandela’s first address at the Cape Town City Hall following his release from jail in 1990. Ramaphosa is expected to give details on economic recovery, unemployment, and the initiatives he must establish to deal with these issues.
