Zuma recommits to Constitution

2012-02-09 19:22

Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma on Thursday recommitted his government to advancing the ideals of the Constitution.

Delivering his annual State of the Nation address to a joint sitting of the two Houses of Parliament, Zuma said 2012 was special in that it marked the 16th anniversary of the Constitution.

However, despite the promises made, the problems of unemployment and poverty persisted.

Women and children, especially, continued to suffer, he said.

    Top class journalism, it's Thursday not Friday. Goodness does News24 not have someone who proof reads these articles before they are published.

    Zuma can't commit to one wife, how is he going to commit to an entire constitution?

    Yeah, yeah. So what about the secrecy act. Many of the laws the ANC have past are unconstitutional but this one is the "last straw that broke the camel's back".

    News24, in your last sentence you conveniently omitted what the Present said, that was to emphasize the Africans, women and children continue to suffer in this country

      ...because of the ANC. Arrogance, Nepotism, Corruption.

    "Delivering his annual State of the Nation address to a joint sitting of the two Houses of Parliament" From what I have seen, some of the members could occupy a seat from each House ....... at the same time.
