CAPE TOWN - President Jacob Zuma is expected to tell the country what government plans to do to improve service delivery and create jobs this year when he delivers his State Of The Nation Address on Thursday.

The president's address will be particularly important as it's an election year.

Meanwhile, Parliament's spokesperson Luzuko Jacobs says the finishing touches for the event are underway.

"We started with our operations a while back, from when the president provided the notification to presiding officers that he will be convening the joint sitting on the National Council of Provinces and the National Assembly on the thirteenth of this month."
