JOHANNESBURG – Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane is preparing to deliver the alternative State of the Nation Address (SONA) address on Tuesday.

He stated the address should be a reflection of what South Africans are most concerned about.

“We’re here saying the issues in South Africa are not just about an individual. There is a system that blocks people, due to corruption. There is, in fact, a high level of joblessness that our people are feeling," the DA leader said.

The address will take place at the East Bank Hall in Alexandra, north of Johannesburg, at 10am.

Gauteng DA Provincial Leader John Moodey and Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba will join Maimane.

He will be outlining the party's vision post 2019.

Maimane is currently on a roadshow, leading a DA campaign to get views from ordinary South Africans on how to tackle challenges facing South Africa.
