Former President Jacob Zuma did not attend the SONA this year and Mzansi noticed. Social media users were quick to comment on his absence as they wondered where he was and what he was doing instead.
Zuma's absence was confirmed when President Cyril Ramaphosa only greeted former presidents Kgalema Motlanthe and Thabo Mbeki at the beginning of his speech.
