This week Thursday President Zuma will give his State of the Nation address, and you’ve been invited to shape the president’s speech.

The presidency has called on members of the public to share their comments on what they’d like to see in the speech by commenting on its Facebook page and twitter (@PresidencyZA).

We have some great ideas for what we’d like the president to talk about.

If you agree with one of our suggestions, please go ahead and share it on the presidency’s Facebook page (copy and paste a suggestion from below) or tweet it out (click the tweet button).

Zuma should talk about how renewable energy projects will create thousands of new jobs.

Zuma should talk about Eskom's coal addiction and rocketing electricity prices.

Zuma should praise SA's renewable energy sources, and map how we'll use them MUCH more in future.

Zuma should talk about the huge costs and unsuitability of nuclear power for South Africa.

Zuma should talk about the looming risk that Eskom's coal power poses to SA water resources.

Zuma should focus on acid mine drainage and its impact on impoverished communities.
