Just two days before the delivery of the 2018 state of the nation address, the jury is still out as to whether President Jacob Zuma will deliver the speech or his deputy Cyril Ramaphosa.

Tiso Blackstar associate editor Ranjeni Munusamy speaks to BusinessLIVE editor and former editor of the Sunday Times Ray Hartley, and political editor of Business Day Natasha Marrian, on what could happen next.
