This is an annual report of eight state-owned companies and the department. This department is one of the three best-performing departments in the Public Service. The state-owned companies are rolling out massive infrastructure development programmes, two of them, at least, Eskom and Transnet.
We had separate meetings with both these state-owned entities where the three parties that have spoken now complimented Eskom and Transnet for the tremendous, good programmes that are being rolled out. Now, they come here and say it is not good enough!
The hon Van Dalen had ample opportunity regarding his so-called secret Eskom file to meet with the department and discuss it in meetings. Nothing came of that! Now, when the report needs to be adopted, he indulges in political grandstanding and political point-scoring, whereas in the meetings they complimented Eskom, Transnet and Infraco. So, I think we will, from this side, totally reject these statements with the contempt they deserve. [Interjections.]
