CAPE TOWN – President Cyril Ramaphosa kicked off his first State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Friday by praising his predecessor.
Ramaphosa, who was sworn in just a night before, said Jacob Zuma had faced the end of his term with dignity.
“I wish to thank honourable members for their patience … I also wish to extend a word of thanks to [former] president Jacob Zuma.”
The words were met with applause and jeers from members of Parliament.
