Reacting to the State of the Nation Address by President Cyril Ramaphosa, the organisation said it was highly anxious with the contradictory statements related to acknowledging agriculture as the biggest contributorthe past quarters in terms of economic growth and job creation in South Africa.
Ramaphosa, who was sworn in on Thursday after his scandal-plagued predecessor, Jacob Zuma, reluctantly resigned, told parliament he was working on a new government team and would announce changes at a later date.
Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Mineral Resources, Sahlulele Luzipo, has welcomed the announcement by President Cyril Ramaphosa during the State of the Nation Address (SONA), where he said that government will be determined to work with mining companies, unions and communities to grow the mining sector.
"A new dawn is upon us", he said in a speech in parliament that drew applause but was criticized by the opposition as short on meaningful solutions.
The plan to address these issues, and many more that weigh on the budget, will provide clarity as to whether South Africa's credit rating is doomed to be further downgraded into junk territory - or if a grace period will allow for the country to prove it can turn its fortunes around.
"We can never think that corruption is a monopoly of the public sector only", he says.
"As I've met people on the walkway, they have said, president, send us, send me, send me, that has encouraged me", he said.
Insistent reports indicate a close link between the Gupta and Zuma families.
The family is a flashpoint for national anger over "state capture", the term used by South Africans to describe an allegedly wide-ranging effort to loot state enterprises under Zuma.
"This morning during my early morning walk in Gugulethu through to Athlone, I was joined by many people from that area and a number of them had occasion to comment on the state of the nation address", the president said.
