Pursuant to Rule 53 of our Rules of Procedure, I seize the opportunity to respond to the State of the Nation Address delivered by the President on June 4. #SOTN2021 #AccountabilityAndService
While the Article 101 of the Constitution doesn't prescribe the content of the Address, it is expected that President would use it as a performance report card of what has been undertaken by government since the last address. Unfortunately, this has never been the case. #SOTN2021
Specifically Objective I(ii) requires the President to report at least once a year the extent of realization of the policy objectives and principles. The provision does not deter the State of the Nation Address from being used as the reporting mechanism. #AccountabilityAndService

.@KathyMagrobi says a number of people chose to take part in the roundtable anonymously - shows the fear they had of the structures they work in. (The roundtable asked a number of women journos about their newsroom experieneces). #SOTN #SOTN2020

@KathyMagrobi @brodiegal .@brodiegal says media in SA can be a very toxic environment for women, especially black women. Men are very patriarchal. And look at glaring absence of women in leadership structures. #SOTN #SOTN2020

@SAEditorsForum @sbungalwa @brodiegal @KathyMagrobi @Journ_SA This year’s #SOTN looks back at 2019 and offers some initial reflections on 2020. QW+'s contribution to the report delves into how journalists choose to amplify the opinions and perspectives of men over women when they use the same men news experts time after time. #SOTN2020

2) Alison Saunders, Dir. of Public Prosecutions (DPP) at Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Her American assets, the Ohrs, Strzok, Comey, Mueller, Lynch, Page, McCabe, etc. were committing treason, and the Queen's Privy Council was anxious to make sure they would execute the plan.

The ineffectiveness of the anti-corruption war is seen in the loss of crucial corruption cases. For instance, in April 2017, the Federal Government lost four high profile corruption cases in ninety-six hours. #SOTN
These losses are in addition to bizarre developments such as the failure of the Government to confirm a substantive Chairman for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). #SOTN
Nothing indicts the current government greater than its failure in one key performance area that ought to be its strength: Security. #SOTN
