Deputy Speaker, the ANC supports the Vote on Women, Children and People with Disabilities. It is quite surprising that some of the issues that were resolved, discussed and responded to by the Minister are now being raised here in the House.
In terms of the administration, I think the Minister did respond to that, by saying that she was able to raise funds. In terms of staff and salaries that were paid outside the Public Service administration, the department did institute a commission of inquiry into allegations of governance irregularities within the department. Whilst the report was still being processed, the department had already begun to act on its recommendations whereby affected staff members were dismissed and disciplinary proceedings instituted.
However, it is surprising, because when there is corruption, the DA makes a lot of noise, and when the systems are put in place to institute an investigation, they come up again and say it is an unfair dismissal. Ke kgomo ya mo?ate, wa e gapa o molato, wa e lesa o molato. [They are never satisfied.]
Under the ANC government, people with disabilities and children have seen the passing of critical legislation which will change their paths for the better. The path is long, and the apartheid damage runs very deep, but the ANC government will continue to make the lives of the vulnerable groups in society better under its regime.
