In conclusion, in echoing the sentiments of President Ramaphosa, let me equally make a clarion call on all South Africans to become champions of the fight against gender-based violence and femicide. A dream is an invitation to do something. As such, the ANC invites society at large, political parties across the House and civil society to be part of this dream. I thank you.

A ndzi rivali ku xeweta presidente wa mundzuku wa tiko ra hina ra Afrika-Dzonga, “commander-in-chief, CIC” [murhangeri wa vuthu] Sello Julius Malema. English: The EFF’s founding manifesto cardinal pillar number three says that, we must build state and government capacity which will lead to the abolishment of tenders.

We made this call because we know that the private sector interest is to make profit at all cost including the lives of our people, like what we saw with Life Esidimeni. Today, we are sitting with a backlog of 1000 special schools, a backlog of over 300 000 kilometers of roads that needs to be paved, we have more than 3,9 million people waiting for houses and the number of informal dwellings have now increased by over

The current level of infrastructure backlog is a clear indication that the state has collapsed, incapable to deliver services and undermine any effort to improve the lives of our people. Instead, billions are wasted through tendering processes which we know has collapsed and it is used to steal money. Mr President, why do we outsource security guards, cleaners, drivers and general workers? Why do we go on tender to buy toilet papers, stationary and other things which we can go and buy straight from black-owned manufactures?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
