2011 a year of progress – Zuma
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
