The government has allocated more than R8 million for tomorrow’s State Of the Nation Address (SONA) to be held in Cape Town.
This year’s Sona will be hosted at the Cape Town City Hall and more than 250 guests are expected to attend the annual event on Thursday evening.
Addressing the media on Tuesday, Parliamentary Secretary Xolile George says while parliament may have budgeted R8 million last year for the Sona, it ended up spending less than R5 million.
He says they are expecting the same situation this year and there are processes in place to mitigate overspending.
