Madam Speaker, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes that it is almost two months since 85 South Africans lost their lives when a building collapsed on them in Nigeria;
2) takes cognisance of the fact that the families of the deceased have not found closure, since the bodies of their loved ones have not yet been returned to them;
3) expresses its utter disgust and disappointment at the failure of both the South African government and the Nigerian authorities and their insensitivity to the pain of the families, as well as the slow processing of the release of the mortal remains;
4) appeals to the Nigerian authorities to release the bodies to be returned to their families so that they can bury their loved ones and get closure; and
5) encourages the South African government to assist where necessary with the burial of the fallen, consequent upon the pain inflicted by the delay of the two governments.
