UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 89 I come to crime and I want to ask you, why is it so difficult to publicly condemn farm murders in South Africa? In South Africa we have black farmers, we have coloured farmers, we have Indian farmers, and we have white farmers. The food you had this morning when you had breakfast ... you must thank the farmers for it. Everybody who is going to have lunch must thank the farmers for it. [Interjections.] Afrikaans : Ek wil vir die agb President sê, verlede jaar ongeveer hierdie tyd was daar aanvalle gewees op moskees – een in KwaZulu-Natal en een in Malmesbury. U tree onmiddelik op.

That’s torture. But still, you refuse to publicly condemn farm murders. [Interjections.] I appeal to you. It’s simple. And I will say to you, hon President, I will invite you to a funeral of someone murdered on a farm, and you can invite me to any other funeral you wish. Lastly, I want to say that there is one outstanding matter, and that is section 235 of the Constitution. It deals with self- determination. It also determines that national legislation has to determine what happens with section 235. There is an accord in place between the Freedom Front, the ANC and the government in 1994. I appeal to you that we meet, that we take this step forward to ensure that section 235 of the Constitution – which deals with self-determination – be taken forward.

English : Do you know that there is a song called The Green, Green Grass of Home ? It’s about this prisoner who sang that he wanted to touch the green, green grass of his home. And then he says, and when I awake and look around me, I was surrounded by four great walls. And yes, I then realised that I was only dreaming. Because he is a prisoner.

    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.
