The Second National Imbizo Focus Week of the fifth democratic administration, that took place on 7 April in Durban, was held under the theme: “Together we move South Africa forward”. This is a rallying theme said to promote partnerships and the transformation of South Africa into a better place for all to live in. This Imbizo week (7-12 April 2015) was hot at the heels of the State of the Nation Address (SoNA) held earlier in February and the post-SoNA Cluster Media Briefings, which made it an ideal platform to amplify the pronouncements of the President in his address. During the Imbizo Focus Week political principals articulated messages around the priorities of government as outlined in the SoNA.
