Bloemfontein - The National Development Plan (NDP) creates certainty for South Africa's future, President Jacob Zuma said on Sunday.

"We now have a plan that has been welcomed by all sectors and not just government and the ruling party alone," he told delegates at the ANC's national conference in Mangaung.

"It is for this reason that we should always make sure that our people, the motive forces, remain focused around our national development vision, otherwise society may lose sense of direction."

The NDP was a map of "where the country is going".

"Now that the plan is there, we [the ANC] must hold it with both hands."

Zuma dismissed rumours that the downgrading of the country's credit rating was a sign the country was unstable.

"We will not delve into the reasons for downgrading, but we want to dismiss the perceptions that our country is falling apart because of the downgrades," he said.

"We continue to do our development work, we continue to plan for a recovery."
