Hon Speaker, there are many things that happen in Africa. There have been many. I think we have been involved in a broader struggle on the continent: The struggle to try to right the wrongs; to try to deal with matters on the continent.
Our approach has been that we needed to persuade, we needed to make people understand, we needed to move with them. We have never adopted a confrontational stance on matters. We have been raising matters when matters have arisen, when things have happened, even on the issue that took place in Malawi.
We have commented already. Maybe the hon member missed those comments. [Interjections.] We have condemned the action taken to arrest people in terms of our Constitution, because it was contrary to our Constitution. We stated the views of this country, as contained in the Constitution.
The manner in which you address the matters on the continent could create conditions that are not conducive for you to engage and lead. But, you could adopt a stance in which you address matters in a manner that makes people receptive to what you say. And you might not adopt the same stance.
We have never kept quiet on the continent. We have raised our issues on elections that have not gone right. I don't think we have kept quiet. So, we are with you on this issue of representing the country and the continent. We are working hard to change Africa, and we will continue to do so. Thank you. [Applause.]
