Mandela Calls for Jobs

CAPE TOWN (x) -- President Nelson Mandela, in a state-of-the-nation address, Friday called for renewed investment and job-driven economic growth to consolidate South Africa's transition to democracy.

"Everywhere and in everything we do, what is now required is boldness in thinking, firmness in resolve and consistency in action," he said in an address to the third session of South Africa's first democratic parliament.
