Thank you, Chairperson. Employment equity is still skewed. The hon Zille claims that there are not enough qualified blacks to appoint, but her MECs are still mostly pale and male - so is the majority of the heads of the provincial departments.
The rest of the province's business leaders see that they can disregard social transformation or pretend that the Western Cape is an island on its own. They take their cue from hon Zille when she calls our people coming from other provinces "refugees". [Applause.] [Interjections.] We must say it because it is our Human Rights Day on Saturday. So we must really implement human rights on the ground and it must start with Premier Zille in the Western Cape.
She insults our people on Twitter, also when she says that people must pay for their own HIV treatment - even in the legislature, in a recent outburst. She said, in 1999, black women on party lists take up space, eat a lot and take padkos [provisions for a journey] without adding value. [Interjections.] She recently even linked some to elephants who should exercise like her. I don't want to exercise like her or look her! [Applause.]
She has serious race issues and the DA faithfully follows that.
