The political tensions and economic social upheavals makes South Africa stronger says President Jacob Zuma.

The number one citizen made this shocking remark whilst receiving his letters of credence from ambassadors and high commissioners at the Presidential Guest House in Pretoria.

President Zuma said to his audience which included ambassadors from the UAE, Benin, Swaziland, the UK, Poland, Turkey and Jordan that he would utilise all of the country’s resources to pull it out of this ‘technical’ recession, stating that the country “works best” when it is in crisis.

“We pull together and use all skills and resources to fight the problem. We are committed to building an inclusive and resilient economy as envisioned in our national development plan (NDP), “Our strong institutions and governance structures also support this stability.”

He finished his address by telling his audience that he needed their support, and he is relying heavily on his international allies to keep their faith in him despite the dwindling support from SA public.
