The State Of The Nation Address (#SONA2016) is approaching and, unless you’re sat in front of your television, you may have to resort to watching a live stream of it on your computer or laptop.

To that end, we’ve hunted down some links to the news stations streaming President Jacob Zuma’s #SONA2016.

Where to watch #SONA2016 Online

Eye Witness News (EWN)




Parliament TV

If you don’t fancy watching the whole thing, you can always follow the live blogging on a couple of other news sites.



This year’s State Of The Nation address looks set to be rather spicy. Today protests took place in the Mother City ahead of Zuma’s address and EWN has reported violent clashes in the street between ANC and EFF supporters. Certain thoroughfares in Cape Town have been ringed with barbed wire and protests have been banned from occurring within 600m of Parliament.

The EFF have announced its intention to interrupt President Zuma’s address and demand an explanation for his sacking of Nhlanhla Nene as Finance Minister last year, while the Democratic Alliance has said that that the most appropriate thing Zuma could announce tonight is his own resignation. We have our own wishlist, and it’s nowhere near as harsh as all that!

We wouldn’t miss this for anything. If you’re online and you want to watch #SONA2016, pick one of the links above and make sure you have some popcorn to hand.
