You say that you want to use their skills and their expertise. The fact of the matter is that you cannot do so. Because of affirmative action, they have to go and seek jobs in other places of the world. And yes, the world reaps that expertise from the people and the young people of South Africa. Still, you discriminate against the young white people of South Africa. Your own youth employment scheme ... white young people cannot participate in it, because they are white. If you go and look for instance what your secretary-general, Ace Magashule, says ... he is still blaming the white people of white monopoly capital. His argument is it is still because of the white people that we cannot have economic growth. With great respect, that is a kick in the teeth of those people who really want to build South Africa.

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 87 Do you want to recognise them? Do you want to enslave the young people and the white young people of South Africa? Because, if you think you can enslave them, you are completely wrong. If you look at your MEC for Education in Gauteng, always blaming Afrikaans schools for his own failures and using them as a smokescreen ... [Interjections.] ... instead of attending to the schools that are real problems. Does the ANC have a problem with my mother tongue, Afrikaans? Because that is what Lesufi says. But I didn’t see you repudiate him, hon President. I said before, do away with black economic empowerment. [Interjections.] And can I say that I am supported in this by black academics like William Gumede? You know, during election time I put in some petrol in my car. The attendant said to me, I’m going to vote for you. And I asked him why. He said, you are quite correct. When it comes to black economic empowerment, it only favours the political elite.

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 88 I’d like to say that you would like to build the economy. But, how can you build the economy if you have a construction mafia stopping 74 construction projects, demanding a 30% shareholding in the company? How can you build the economy if more than 110 engineers in the construction business left South Africa because of these criminal elements? I want to say to you today, if you don’t curb these criminal activities, you will not be able to build the economy. More than 16 trucks burnt over a weekend! The people who keep the economy rolling, but they burn them and people lose their lives because of crime in South Africa. You will have to ensure that, if you want the economy to grow, you curb the powers of the unions. You know, and everyone in South Africa knows, that when it comes to the state-owned enterprises, SOEs, you have to retrench people. But the unions come to you and the ANC and say to you, you will not do that.

    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.
