Taxpayers are set to fork around R4-million for this year’s State of the Nation Address proceedings.
This year’s SONA will, like in 2020, be hosted in a hybrid fashion.
Some delegates will attend the event in person at the Cape Town City Hall, while others will attend the event virtually.
The acting secretary of Parliament, Baby Tyawa says extra expenses have to be budgeted for, this year, after the fire at Parliament in January.

The amount includes the cost of proceedings for the post-SONA debates and President Cyril Ramaphosa’s reply.

Tyawa says the 2020 SONA cost taxpayers around R208,000.
