CAPE TOWN - President Jacob Zuma has insisted South Africa is moving forward under his leadership and has a good story to tell.

But he listed the Marikana shootings, xenophobic attacks, substance abuse and violent crime as deep seated problems.

"Something is wrong with sections of our society."

Introducing the Presidency's R1.2 billion budget in the National Assembly on Tuesday, Zuma also told Members of Parliament (MPs) he'd make the Marikana report public by the end of June.

The killing of 34 miners at Lonmin's Marikana operation nearly three years ago overshadowed what was at times a fractious debate.

The Farlam Commission of Inquiry handed over the report in March with its recommendations after investigating the 2012 violence on the platinum belt.

Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane called on Zuma to release the Marikana report immediately and not by the end of June as he had promised.

"We must send a signal that all are equal before the law. Those responsible for the atrocities at Marikana should be fired and jailed."

Maimane laid into Zuma over the state of the economy, saying it had collapsed under his leadership.
