After the wasted decade of the zuma years and now

After the wasted decade of the Zuma years, and now with your own electoral mandate under your belt, what was needed more than any thing was a good dose of brass tacks, hard reality and bold reforms. [Applause.] It’s what the nation was desperate to hear and it’s what we were desperate to hear last Thursday and what we were desperate to hear today. Now is the time for action, the clarion call to service, the rallying cry against corruption, the decisive demolishing of the roadblocks to growth and prosperity. Instead, we got dreams and virtuous ends with ten year sell by dates- basically you say to us Mr President for the next ten years: “don’t call me, I’ll call you.” Ten years? We don’t have ten years, we don’t exist in some utopian dream in which we can fluffily float for a decade, and we are in the nightmare of immediacy. We are in a race against the clock to get our country working and get our people back to work.

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 405 Dreams without plans are merely fantasies, and boy we did we hear a lot of those today! I will start with the foe communist that we have within our ranks. I see he’s been delegated now to the NCOP, as the colleagues in the NA couldn’t wait to get rid of him. They are horrified; he has popped up in the NCOP to terrorise us once a year at that state of the nation address once again. [Laughter.] Frankly, disingenuously it says to us that the Zondo Commission was gifted to the Country by the ANC, rubbish, and absolute rubbish! It was the results of the Public Protector report which made it as a finding. [Applause.]. Nothing to do with you hon Carrim, nothing, but a like walking, talking version of Pravda, he carried on with the ranked dishonesty that has became the South African Communist Party. Is it amazing that he can stand here with his hands in his pockets, picking on the DA, picking on the EFF and tearing our manifestos into pieces. Where was your manifesto at this election? [Laughter.]! You never have the courage to put your ideas before the country and let them test it. You are a coward at heart under the petticoat of the ANC. [Applause.].

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 406 You talk about identity crisis, well goodness me, if the DA is got an identity crisis hon Carrim, you guys have got schizophrenia on Olympian proportions. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zum, Jacob Zuma, JZ, Magashule faction, the Zuma faction, radically economic transformation and the new dawn, every one of them. You guys can’t even get together in room and have coherent conversation and isn’t amazing, it criticizes the policies of the free market, the policies of the market, well the people in Venezuela, 3,4 million of them aren’t running away from our policies, hon Carrim they are running, they are running away from yours. [Applause.] [Interjection.] The DEPUTY CHAIRPERSON OF THE NCOP: Hon Steenhuisen...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
