Economic Freedom Fighters leader, Julius Malema, was not impressed with President Jacob Zuma's State of the Nation Address on Tuesday evening.

"There is nothing exciting except a blowing of hot air and a repetition of the things that we have heard before," Malema said of the address in which Zuma said the minister of labour was investigating minimum wages.

Malema also accused the president of not always meaning what he says and often playing to his crowd.

On the president's mention of the improvement of housing and living conditions of miners, Malema was not impressed: "And the ANC people clap hands to mediocrity. He is plagiarising the mining charter," he said.

The political leader said the government and mining industry have failed the mining charter.
