House Chair, I move without notice:
That the House-
1) notes that the Ndebele Students Association, NSA, hosted its first ever Ndebele Spelling Bee and debate competition at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg a few weeks ago;
2) further notes that both events saw over 12 severely under- resourced high schools from Mpumalanga participating in the competitions;
3) recognises that the events were attended by some Members of this House across the political divide;
4) acknowledges that both events were aligned to Parliament's theme of celebrating South Africa's literary classics in the year of indigenous languages;
5) further recognises that the events were also attended by the recipient of the Order of Ikhamanga in Silver, Dr. Nothembi Mkhwebane who was also bestowed the special honour award; and
6) commends the contribution of the Wits NSA for their role in the preservation of indigenous languages.
I so move.
