Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma will have to encourage South Africans to become entrepreneurs in his State of the Nation Address, small business minister Lindiwe Zulu said at parliament on Thursday.

"The president will have to encourage South Africans to make sure that they become entrepreneurs because the economy is not doing very well," Zulu told Fin24 on the red carpet before the SONA 2016.

Zulu said through small and medium enterprises SA would be assured of building the economy "but more than anything else (it's) about radical economic transformation".
