President Jacob Zuma will reply to the debate of his 2017 State of Nation Address (SONA) on Thursday afternoon.
Over the past two days Members of Parliament have been debating the President's speech which centred around expediting land reform and ensuring radical socio-economic transformation.

It went ahead without the participation of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members who are on suspension following their removal form the Chambers.
The ANC sets the ball rolling with Minister Jeff Radebe accusing the DA of political grand-standing for proposing a moment of silence for 94 mentally-ill patients who died in Gauteng.
And for its part the Democratic Alliance (DA) decried the heightened security during the address saying from a liberator the African National Congress (ANC) is becoming an oppressor.
Other parties said lack of inclusive growth failure to address the land question should be blamed on the ANC with President Zuma expected to respond on Thursday afternoon.
