  • Appropriation Bill (Policy Debate) 18 Jun 2013

    Deputy Chair, the member referred to transformation. I would like to ask the member, through you, hon Deputy Chair: Is he satisfied right now that transformation is really taking place in respect of local government issues?

  • RJ. 21 Jun 2012

    Sorry, Chair, we cannot allow this to go on - this thing that we keep on hearing about Bantu education. The hon Sinclair never had that feeling; he never had that pain, and he keeps on repeating this, Chair. We cannot allow this: He keeps on telling us about Bantu ...

  • RJ. 21 Jun 2012

    He said again that it was because of Bantu education that we did it like that. He said that, Chair.

  • Appropriation Bill (Policy Debate) 17 May 2012

    Hon Minister, it is time that we really go to grass-roots level to make this vision - "A better life for all" and "Working together we can do more" - a reality. In your budget speech you do not mention specifically how much money will be spent in each province. ...
