Here’s a first – Gwede Mantashe (ANC) and Athol Trollip (DA) speaking the same language

The ANC’s Gwede Mantashe reiterated that job creation should be the government’s main aim while DA parliamentary leader Athol Trollip says he is satisfied that the lack of jobs and job creation was prioritised in the president’s State of the Nation Address. This was declared at Idasa’s first “Building Democratic Societies” meeting series 2011, on Zuma’s State of the Nation address. The only real gripe came from Cosatu’s Tony Ehrenreich who said: “People are hugely frustrated, there’s a huge gap in service delivery, we need to respond to that. Start building a team that brings together business, labour, civil society and government to respond to those challenges.” If you want to hear the whole debate click hear for the podcast.
