Zuma slams NDP critics

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma raked over the coals those who criticised the National Development Plan (NDP), according to Wednesday's Business Report.

Zuma said it offered an important blueprint to advance South Africa's economy and tackle poverty, unemployment and inequality.

Speaking at a presidential banquet organised by the ANC's Progressive Business Forum on the eve of the Fifth Brics Summit, Zuma said the NDP was one of the critical milestones in post-apartheid South Africa. Therefore, he reportedly said, it was difficult to understand the critics.

Earlier in March the National Union of Metalworkers criticised the NDP, saying it was based on the Democratic Alliance's policies.

Zuma said before the NDP was adopted last year it was presented for input, which allowed opportunity for contributions and criticism.

"I don't know where were these people who are saying it is a wrong document," he said.

Brics is an acronym for the developing nations: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. The summit started in Durban on Wednesday.
