JOHANNESBURG - President Cyril Ramaphosa delivered the State of the Nation Address (Sona) in Cape Town on Friday night.

This was for the first time Ramaphosa spoke as head of State.

On Thursday, Ramaphosa was sworn in as South Africa&39;s president following the resignation of ex-president Jacob Zuma.

The address was postponed last week as negotiations to remove Jacob Zuma from the presidency played out.
