2011 a year of progress – Zuma

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

THE year has ended bet­ter than it started, Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma said.

“We have made vis­i­ble progress in re­duc­ing se­ri­ous and vi­o­lent crimes, in im­prov­ing health care, ru­ral de­vel­op­ment, ed­u­ca­tion, so­cial se­cu­rity and the gen­eral ex­pan­sion of ac­cess to ba­sic ser­vices,” he said.

In 2011 the govern­ment cre­ated part­ner­ships for job cre­ation and made firm plans to im­prove in­fra­struc­ture.

A great achieve­ment for the coun­try was host­ing the COP17 cli­mate change con­fer­ence.

Zuma urged South Africans to make 2012 a year of unity and to cel­e­brate the coun­try’s po­lit­i­cal her­itage – with the “his­toric cel­e­bra­tion” of the cen­te­nary of the ANC on Jan­uary 8. – Sapa
