Sona has been scheduled for 22 February following calls for Zuma to step down.

The EFF has, however, written to the National Assembly Speaker, Baleka Mbete, requesting that Sona be brought forward.

The EFF gave the speaker until Tuesday to reply to its request.

The opposition party has also called for a motion of no confidence in Zuma.
