President Jacob Zuma has criticised those who want South Africans to believe that they have not achieved anything since 1994.

Saying it was not true that nothing had been achieved‚ Zuma said at the opening of the National House of Traditional Leaders that South Africans had consolidated democracy and had begun to build a better life for all especially the poor through many programmes of government since 1994.

“We need to recognise that‚ while working hard to fix the problems that exist‚ which exist in all developing countries‚” he added.

He said that just over two decades ago the prospect of a democratic South Africa where all its citizens lived in peace and freedom looked like a pipedream.

“I am convinced that working together again we can overcome the economic headwinds we face‚” he said.
