SONA changes location after Parliament fire, Cape Town City Hall named new venue

Speaking of SONA, Briefly News previously reported that the State of the Nation Address (SONA), which is held annually at Parliament, will take place at Cape Town City Hall as the National Assembly will not be repaired in time for the event.

On 7 January, parliamentary officers met to discuss how SONA could go ahead after the fire at Parliament on 2 January. They concluded that City Hall is an appropriate venue to relocate the event to.

The officers added that they believe that Parliament's work is of utmost importance and that nothing must stand in the way of them achieving their objectives, including SONA.
