This is what was said in 1955 in the Freedom Charter, and the Constitution shares the same sentiments. This applies to all places and provinces in South Africa, without exception.
Taba ye nngwe ye e makat?ago ka profense ye ya Kapa Bodikela ke ge go etla go tshwaro ya mago?i, e lego baetapele ba set?o. Mmu?o wa profense ye o etelet?wego pele ke DA o nagana gore profense ye ke naga yeo e ikemet?ego. Profense ye ke yona fela ye e se nago le ntlo ya mago?i gomme mmu?o wa gona ga o bonale o ikemi?edit?e go ?uta mo tabeng ye, le ge go na le bohlatse bja gore MaKhoi le MaSan le bathobaso ba bangwe bao ba dulago mo ba na le mago?i, e lego baetepele ba set?o.

[The DA-led government in this province operates as if this province is independent. They handle the issue of traditional leaders in a strange way. This is the only province without a provincial traditional house and it seems their government is not making any effort to change the current situation. However, there is evidence that the Khoi, the San and other black people who live in this province have traditional leaders.
The biggest problem that has been registered in Contralesa meetings is that Helen Zille, the premier of the Western Cape province, does not even want to see the traditional leaders from this province. As members of the ANC we want to tell the traditional leaders from this province that traditional leadership and the rights of traditional leaders are enshrined in the Constitution of this country. They are compelled to obey the Constitution.]
The rights of women are fundamental human rights, entrenched in and protected by our Constitution. They are thus inalienable from, integral to and indivisible from the human rights framework. Their violation in all its different likenesses is incompatible with the dignity and worth of the human being, and it must be stopped.
There is as such a need to accelerate and enhance women empowerment, including strengthening awareness-raising, information and communication. Strengthening women rights and moving towards full equality between women and men are vital components of achieving a happy and egalitarian society.
So we must all do our best to ensure that we achieve the realisation of the human rights that are enshrined in the Constitution. We owe it to the people of this land who sacrificed their lives to ensure that we have democracy and human rights. These are the people of, but not limited to, Sharpeville, to whom March 21 is dedicated.
To properly honour their memory, we must ensure that those who continue to exact this terrible toll of the violation of human rights on the country and its citizens are dealt with. And we must start with the likes of these people just around the corner.
Lehlaka le kobja e sa le le le nanana gape ?epa la mp?a le lona le dubja e sa le le le meetse, ka go realo, le ka oma la hlaba. [Applause.] (Translation of Sepedi paragraph follows.)
[Problems must be addressed at an early stage to avoid them escalating to a stage where it will be even more difficult to address them. [Applause.]]
