Speech a huge responsibility, says Zuma

2011-02-10 08:29

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma considers the State of the Nation address to be one of his "most important" speeches, he said in a radio interview ahead of the opening of Parliament on Thursday.

"As you wake up, you know that you are carrying a very huge responsibility," Zuma said in an interview broadcast on SAfm on Thursday morning.

"The nation puts you here and they are expecting you to report back what you have been doing, but also to say what is it you're going to do on the tasks before you.

"So, in a sense, you position yourself with an understanding that I am going to be talking to the nation - very important, one of the most important addresses that you can make," said Zuma.

He has received advice and calls from across the country on matters he should address in his speech on Thursday night, with crime, joblessness, corruption and education problems topping the agenda.

    Ill celebrate this so called democracy by not bothering to listen to the garbage you plan to spew out. All I want to hear is that this Country is in a state and you take full responsibility - Immediately give your resignation. Klaar.

      P226 - 2011-02-10 09:01

      That pretty much sums it up, paul, thanks.

      sessisie - 2011-02-10 09:31

      Yes, less talk and more do!

      wesley.raleigh - 2011-02-10 09:45

      agreed. I also want to know how "addressing" these matters in a speech, is in anyway shape or form, like actually addressing these matters IN REAL life actions. wow, yet again just like having meetings to plan meetings.

      The State of The Nation read by the Mistake of The Nation!

      Flinger - 2011-02-10 11:23

      His speech should start and stop like this..."Ladies and gentleman...distinguished ANC card holders...half price on chicken till elections - thank you very much"...atleast its something that we can all benefit from...but NOOOO, now its "I promise this" and "I promise that"...like Dr. Evil with his pinky to his lip he will promise 1 Million jobs by next friday...what a waste of my time...ill be watching cartoon network.

      Zolani - 2011-02-10 12:15

      Participating in The State of the nation’s Zuma Drinking game You need - hardcore phuza,wine, beer, we discourage the use of methylated spirits, diesel and cat oil, Watch the speech - unless you lose consciousness Every time the Prez says "Absolutely!” clears his throat or pushes his glasses up his nose; you must drink Good luck! Viva De...mocracy Viva!

  • 1gascan - 2011-02-10 08:36

    SAfm? Ok, so hardly anybody heard you then! Yes, it will be the most important - probably the best time for you to promise what you can't actually deliver (yet again)...

    Now if only Love Pants would consider running the country correctly a huge responsibility'!

  • DiePriester - 2011-02-10 08:47

    Expect a lot of promises with the local elections coming up from the speech he will be reading with difficulty as usual because it was prepared/written by someone else.

  • Stylin - 2011-02-10 08:50

    Mr President. Critical focus on Land reform, BBEEE, wealth distribution and Nationalisation of mines ... :-)

      BigD - 2011-02-10 09:14

      Why should he bother. Those idiot items are allready in place.

      allie - 2011-02-10 09:46

      Yes Mr President,give,give,give!!!!

      DW - 2011-02-10 12:13

      Land reform is being addressed. BBEEE has chased all the qualified people away and made the hugely wealthy even wealthier. Wealth distribution? So what I have worked for must be given to you while you sit and do nothing and demand gimme, gimme, gimme? Nationalisation of mines - how will this help? Have you seen the massive problem with the acid water bubbling up all over Witwatersrand? This is going to cost billions and billions of rand to fix and you want to take over the cost? Go for it! There will be no wealth left to distribute.

  • taariqhendricks - 2011-02-10 08:56

    This coming from someone who does not write his own speeches

      maseratifitt - 2011-02-10 09:30

      That is why it is such a huge responsibility. He must have the pages in the correct order, the right way up, pronounce the words properly, take note of the punctuation, take care to accentuate the highlights, allow time for applause, etc. Then he must smile, laugh and joke at the correct times. Big job, man!

      Dnt8 - 2011-02-10 09:36

      My son told me the other day that he is much more intelligent than the president. He is in grade 6 and the president only went to grade 3....lol

  • Brakkies - 2011-02-10 08:57

    This year he is going to promise 1 000 000 jobs created by June, a target which will not be met, but hey, who cares? Since when are politicians held accountable for their words in this country? The ANC will still be in power as the masses is (seemingly) too stupid to realise that they are being taken for a ride by the very people that promissed them freedom....

      jiamalunga - 2011-02-10 09:05

      the poor sods!

      allie - 2011-02-10 09:51

      Create jobs.Make the government bigger.The rest you make up with AA.What he meant was ,to create more ANC voters.

      Dan - 2011-02-10 10:44

      @ Brakkies. I like the part of the masses. So true. I actually realized that the masses fully deserve what they have - that is exactly what they ask for by casting their votes and the ANC always delivers. Just a shame they always deliver nothing - except for redistribution among the ANC elite, their friends and their families.

  • Intrigue - 2011-02-10 09:04

    Yes it is a huge responsibility... A HUGE responsibility to not falter on all the lies he will vomit up and throw at the Nation.

  • mullervince - 2011-02-10 09:05

      John - 2011-02-10 09:50

      I'll rather vote for anc brother and hope zuma comes with the solution for better life . Voting for da is just like voting for apartheid . I mean going back to where we come from as slaves is not worth it at all i viva anc viva

      Blah-blah - 2011-02-10 09:59

      Shame John - enjoying all the free stuff his already given you - house, jobs, fat bank account? Oops - he must have forgotten about you - there's a surprise. Apartheid is dead my friend - 6 feet under and never to be seen again. There is nothing to fear, but fear itself - ask yourself why you are so afraid... VUKA!

      Dan - 2011-02-10 10:48

      @ John. You are 100% correct and therefore you deserve what you get. The ANC voters must just start realizing that they have the right to demand what has been promised to them. For some reason they actually believe the ANC every 4 years, just to be left in the dark for the next 4 years. This puzzles me completely.

      Wow! - 2011-02-10 11:08

      @John. I see you are placing a lot of your faith in "hope"? That is being practical, because Zuma and the ANC have had trouble making things happen on the ground. I need to point out to you that the ANC absorbed the apartheid party - is that because they are so similar? The DA is derived from parties that fought against apartheid.

      P226 - 2011-02-10 11:18

      @ john, where the hell do you people get the idea that the DA will reinstate Apartheid? there will be war before that happens, but i dont see us avoiding one if the ANC doesnt step up or step down. Hoping that Zuma will pull the country out of this rutt is like believing a 4 year old will discover a cure for cancer tomorrow.

      randrdunbar - 2011-02-10 13:08

      Maybe John believes in the 'Heaven' President Zuma was talking about.

      randrdunbar - 2011-02-10 13:10

      Oh I get it, John only votes for 'indigenous' African people.

  • Logs01 - 2011-02-10 09:06

    Mmmm, he's starting to feel the pressure !!! Difficult to bullshit all the people and ANC supporters all the time, can only keep on bullshitting some of them (the totally stupid one's), all the time. Many are "waking up" slowly, other are VERY "restless" and most are now seeing through the bullshit and turning against the ANC. "The nation puts you here and they are expecting you to report back what you have been doing, but also to say what is it you're going to do on the tasks before you." Gets really tricky to keep on making up new crap and empty promisses, so your "followers" will keep on following you blindly into "hell" not "heaven".

      christine - 2011-02-10 09:17

      I really hope u are correct--lets hope the tide is turning against the anc --slowely but surely--but the problem is when u are as stupid as zuma and can only barely read the speach someone has written for him --the question is --can he actually fix anything --i think not

    i'm seriously concerned about the slow service delivery in our country & i wish to hear our president tackling that issue

      Gurkan - 2011-02-10 09:24

      What do you expect when tax payers are leaving the country or their jobs to unproductive, strike-loving, lazy people? With which money Zuma will bring service delivery, grants for the lazy, etc..

      Dan - 2011-02-10 10:55

      @ Ijphologane. I don't want to be rude, but do yourself a favour and for once in your life be totally objective when doing this: Take 1 day off and visit every government department and municipality in your area. Try and meet or speak with or just try to get a view of every director, deputy director, MEC, MM, etc. (all the top positions in government)in government. If after that day you still feel comfortable with what you have seen, then you know you are on the right track. I do however think you will get the schock of your life! Then you will realize why there is no service delivery and why there will never be service delivery.

      wattalotokak - 2011-02-10 12:14

      Did you not hear???? Dlamini said they had been tasked by delegates to come up with a new term which would replace "service delivery". They recon that by calling it a different name then the service delivery matter will be solved once and for all. If you don't believe me check it out: http://www.newstime.co.za/rs_headlines.asp?recid=11653 What a bunch of chops...

      Spade - 2011-02-10 13:28

      That's the problem; we all hear how he will tackle the problem, but nothing really gets done...perhaps he should tell us about all the problems he's already tackled, and how successful he has been in doing so. Will shorten his speech dramatically...

  • foitapoilet - 2011-02-10 09:10

    Zoo ma' If speech has a responsibility then why contradict yourself and make your self look stupid when you sing 'Umshini wam' and then that pottie mouth amoeba dingaling sings 'shoot the boer' There is no qualified intellectual cognition in anything that the ANC represent in speech. On inspecting the new Airbus SAA received he can at least see out both sides of the planes windows at once. Have a banana!

      Peter - 2011-02-10 10:26

      John, get the chip off your bloody shoulder. "We have been through apartheid for almost a centurie (sic)" You need some history lessons you racist IDIOT.

      Chris - 2011-02-10 10:28

      John - the sooner you understand that apartheid will never ever again be in south africa the better you are off my friend. the times have change, everybody wants to build SA to be better for everyone. just a pitty you & millions of other people can't see this and still believe in this ANC - they steel BILLIONS (not millions) Billions of rand that is suppose to go to the poor...service delivery - do you know what it means?

      AJ - 2011-02-10 10:34

      @John: actually you ARE in slavepark - most of you never left and most of you most likely will not ever, if current attitudes are anything to go by.

      foitapoilet - 2011-02-10 10:50

      @ sad John. I am so glad that your written logic tells us that no matter how deep you stand in 'it' your'e happy, as long as ' zthaet ztheeng ahpaaathate' never comes back. I dont think to try and understand Zuma, my brain cant slow down that much. As for what I have compared to you, I dont really care what the ANC do for anyone because I dont wait for anything, I work and do it myself. I dont have to get up at stupid 0' clock and catch a taxi anywhere. Unlike You and the millions of others who sits on the sideline and receives nothing for 'YOUR' vote. Keep on keeping on Dopey!

    i'm seriously hurt about the slow service delivery and empty promises in some of the provinces in our country whereas some provinces are prioritized... E.g they're perfectioning gauteng with everything and on the other side they are forgetting some of the rural villages and again remember that no one said they can't be like or better than gauteng

    "The danger to South Africa is not Jacob Zuma but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a Zuma presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Zuma, who is a mere symptom of what ails South Africa. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Jacob Zuma, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President.

It is common sense, without investment for the future, there will not be any future. While China is discouraging more than one child, your ANC distributes my money as grants to encourage "vote producing" herds to breed even faster than rabits. And wait, when they can not pay those grants anymore, they will offer the government to DA, only to "prove" the ANC herds that they were better than DA!

    One the one hand I think the naming is apt - 'State of the Nation'. Because our nation is indeed in a STATE. On the other hand I think it should be 'State of the Comrades' because honestly, the rest of the nation won't be listening.

    The State of the Nation drinking game! Here are the rules: 1. You will need a litre or two of some kind of liquid. You may use any kind of drink you like - hardcore phuza, water, wine, beer, tea, soft-drinks or even coffee. We discourage the use of methylated spirits, diesel and cat oil, for health reasons. 2. You must watch the entire speech - unless you lose consciousness after the first 40, 45 minutes - in which case you are exempted. 3. Every time the Prez says "Absolutely!", clears his throat or pushes his glasses up on to the bridge of his nose; you must drink one shot of your choice liquid. 4. If the Prez mentions ABSA, "Nquza Hill" or starts laughing, you have to double the quantities consumed. 5. Make sure you don't have to drive anywhere after this game. After-all, it's Phuza Thursday - and even excess coffee will render you a zombie. Good luck! See you on Thursday at 19h00! Viva Democracy Viva!

    @Logs01 Chief,im not sure whether you are in ICU to fix that stupit brain of yours or what,and if i were you i would think twice b4 applying that brain which is covered by those big ears of yours and as soon as you get discharge please join us in filling the breeze of our nation,BARIE

      Lump of coal - 2011-02-10 10:04

      Hey mdu .... a couple more years of study (in punctuation, spelling and general vocab) and YOU could one day write this speech for Jacob !!!! Viva Mdu Viva !!!!

      Logs01 - 2011-02-10 10:05

      He,he, Yip, nothing anybody can do for you. You are terminal (not the one at the bus- or train-station). My goodness, the ANC is really going "places" with the likes of you in their midst (Umm, "midst" does not mean "bees MIS", like "Koei kak"), just to help you a bit...... Ai, ai,

      Educated - 2011-02-10 10:08

      Please, at very least, learn to string a sentence together before you go insulting anyone of being stupid.

      Paul - 2011-02-10 10:09

      Agreed Mdu. I cant understand one word of what you are saying but I do like the bit where you said "chief".

      Logs01 - 2011-02-10 10:16

      @mdu: Do you realize that you actually have the qualities to become President!!. You are Black, devoted ANC, totally stupid and arrogant enough to share your stupidity with the whole world. JZ & Malenema must watch their step, "mdu" is coming..... Ai, ai, you really made my day, Thx Clown

      CharlSkeptic - 2011-02-10 10:37

      you are a lightweight, my buddy mdu - you have soooo much to learn before you can be a REAL doos like Malema or Andile Lungisa

  • York Hunt - 2011-02-10 09:46

    @Mdu. Yes much has been achieved in a decade and a half. Let's not forget our very own, very corrupt arms deal. And remember Travelgate. What abot Oilgate? Mbeki spent 8 years doing nothing. Crime and corruption are also doing really well. Many muncipalities cannot be audited because they are SO corrupt. Much has been achieved within the last decade and a half especially the ongoing farm murders and home invasions. That is going very well. Yes, SO much has been achieved. Thank you for that!

  • JuluisMalema - 2011-02-10 09:50

    I really really do hope the mr Zuma will do his natunal anthem complete with his dance, side to side fists in front of stomach.

    Well done JZ, pleased to see that you acknowledge the importance of your position as President, as well as the responsibility it requires... Now PLEASE acknowledge that you and your ANC comrades. Are NOT fit for this responsibility!

  • John - 2011-02-10 09:52

    Nonsense to vote for da .

      Educated - 2011-02-10 10:19

      Nice try john but fortunately even those with IQ's below 80 are starting to realise that the DA is the only obvious choice if we want to see any improvements. That age old fairy tale, that the ANC are trying to spread, about the DA bringing back apartheid is seriously getting stale now and even someone of your caliber should be able to see through it.

      Paul - 2011-02-10 10:22

      That is why you must vote FF+ . Julius Malema is Boss at this party. He employs white people (Agents) to trick white people voting for him. It stands for Free Food + taxi fare.

      JuluisMalema - 2011-02-10 10:31

      Ja because you do not get the free peri peri chicken and beer, or house or fridge. We must keep this ANC in charge, though they are pigmentally ill, and driven by poridge, and clean houses and gardens, confusing black robbers and rapists, before they become leaders, I like them, bleck stinking woodheads.

      you don't get to travel a lot do you John? Go spent a week in Eastern Cape, then Jozi's - then travel to Durbs and really do go out...you know, go drive around at night, go walk the city streets and enjoy your freedom - then go visit CPT - do the same. See which one gives you a feeling of hope. Then ask who's in charge - and really do go look at some of their stats - and what they have achieved compared to the other provinces.

      P226 - 2011-02-10 11:27

      A vote for the ANC is a vote for SATAN!

      Brakkies - 2011-02-10 15:54

      John, ask yourself this, why did your beloved ANC decide to buy billions of rands worth of submarines and other weapons thats now sitting gathering cobwebs, when they could've used that money on schools, hospitals, houses, job creation ect ect. Real life things that benifit you and me and the man on the street. I'm sure you'll agree that you'd rather have your kids get a proper education or be able to go to a decent hospital when you're sick, than to have a submarine sitting in simonstown doing nothing? I agree with you that the DA(as is all politicians) is a bunch of morons, but I'd rather vote for them than the party who's top brass have been enriching themselves with our tax money for the last 17 years)

  • Blah-blah - 2011-02-10 10:01

    If only I had R10 for every empty promise this government has made - I could have already bought a farm and lost it to the badly administered land reform by now:) You want to create jobs witless wonder? Then look after the people who create jobs!

  • n s - 2011-02-10 10:07

    just remember to promise heaven :) then everything will be ok

  • 360Jason - 2011-02-10 10:07

    All the SABC need to do is go to the archives store room, find the one from last year, cut in a few World Cup comments, cut out all of the grunts and the time it takes for him to readjust his glasses with his middle finger and press play.

  • dvdb27 - 2011-02-10 10:07

    It's too little too late Zuma. Too many kids are addicted to tik. Too many nice rims buckled by potholes. Too many weak, hard earned SA Rondt's gone missing or spent on tasteless gravy ingredients. Too many mothers killing babies. Too many farmers disemboweled. Too many wives raped and tortured in front of kids and husbands. Too many unroadworthy taxi's smashing into law abiding citizens vehicles wiping out entire families. Too many light air craft crashes. Too many blocked street drains. Too much human feaces for the sewerage plants to handle. Too many educated South Africans lost to developed nations. Too many illegal immigrants. Too many shot in their driveways and homes for NOTHING. Too many undisclosed arms deals. Too many good relationships between SA and the leading communist countries. Too many cheaply paid for and gruesome murders. Too many rhino's poached. Too many visits to Zim to meet ZanuPF. Too many racial slurs like, "kill white people". Too many pointless and expensive parties inside and outside of the country. Too many kilos of boerewors soaked in imported Jack Daniel's bourbon whiskey at ANC birthday bashes. Too many broken promises. Too many brainwashed citizens. Too many scare tactics. Too many arrogant government officials. Too many racist Metro Cops (black on white and Indian more specifically). Too many cabinet reshuffle's. How many times? Too many times. Skunk has a special message for you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AWEVv0Q27w

  • cmr.insurance - 2011-02-10 10:08

    All he has to do is promise every thing people want to hear again like in the past. how it get done if at all is not a concern. In other words Blablabla, same shit different day

  • Peter - 2011-02-10 10:19

    This is like screwing for virginity!!!!

  • Joe_Public - 2011-02-10 10:21

    How to rape the country, haul in as much moola and make as many connections as possible but still make the masses think that we're doing them a huge favour. Can't let it slip out that they're getting shafted. Oh and got to keep JuJu happy too. And don't forget his nurse to change his diaper. Can't have JuJu with a poopoo following this speech. Yes it's a huge responsibility.

  • kungfupanda - 2011-02-10 10:22

    Worst public speaker in South Africa with nothing to say.....can you imagine anything more embarrassing?!?!

  • grind101 - 2011-02-10 10:36

    Its so sad how all the ignorant whites gather here and entertain each other with these weak comments/views that have no substance. Now as you were kids, let the grown folks get back to work.

      kungfupanda - 2011-02-10 10:42

      Who said im white? Sounds like you still living in the past. The year is 2011, apartheid is over. People are now allowed to have their own opinions regardless of what color their skins are. And i guarantee you all the intelligent people (white or black) in this country think Zuma is an embarrassment. Of course that also rules you out as someone with intelligence.

      Paul - 2011-02-10 10:43

      Its wonderful. Since my good friend and business partner, Sipho or Siswe or whatever his name is and I landed this government tender, I have so much more time to blog and lunch. We are tasked to deliver services or computers or whatever to some or other people (Sipho or Sam or whoever handles that end).So technically I am at work. Posting this is seriously cutting into tea time.

      P226 - 2011-02-10 11:29

      yeah, your mother is getting restless. dont wait up for her, she will be late.

      P226 - 2011-02-10 11:30

      @ Paul, you crack me up man.

  • Dan - 2011-02-10 10:38

    If it is so important, why talk so much shit? Please at least get someone a bit more literate to write the speech. Hope we don't hear the ANC has now also reserved taxi's to take their members to heaven.

      Paul - 2011-02-10 10:46

      One things for sure. Climbing into a taxi is the quickest way to get to the afterlife.

  • Paul - 2011-02-10 10:58

    that clown is going to stand there read a speach that was written for him and more than likely not have a clue as to what he is saying.

      foitapoilet - 2011-02-10 11:20

      At least he will be looking at the audience on the left and on the right at the same time!
