The Western Cape’s retention rate from Grades 10 - 12 is the highest in the country. In healthcare, already we know that more of our citizens are connected online and we keep 13 million of citizens’ online records to make sure we give effective healthcare.

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 35 to help the places where the DA isn’t government so that we can continue the work that we have. [Interjections.] I would urge you, Mr President, let us free up small businesses to create work, let us sell off our beleaguered SOEs, let us modernize and de-unionize our children’s basic education. We have a plan and let’s begin to work on it. I want to say this: Every single day in this country I draw inspiration from the teacher who shows up in the classroom despite what has happened, I draw inspiration from the healthcare worker who goes to our hospital, I draw inspiration from the businessman who even when confronted with profit and profit losses still keeps people employed. And in this month I think we need to draw inspiration from the young people of 1976. When they looked out and realised that they could not spend their days dreaming, they decided to take to the streets and fight for what was rightfully theirs. Mr President, time for talking is over, it is time for us to act, right now. I thank you very much. [Applause.]

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 36 The MINISTER IN THE PRESIDENCY: Madam Speaker; His Excellency, the President of the Republic of South Africa, President Ramaphosa; Deputy President of the Republic, David Mabuza; hon members of the House; distinguished guests in the gallery; fellow South Africans, hon Maimane speaks as if we are still in an election campaign. He seems to have forgotten that the reason that we had the President of the ANC delivering the state of the nation address was precisely because their priorities and manifesto were rejected by the people of this country. [Applause.] It is the manifesto of the governing party that returned to govern that was accepted by our people. [Applause.] President, therefore, you were standing here last week and delivered the state of the nation address. If hon Maimane and the parties in this House want to join us in growing South Africa and making South Africa a better place to live in, our manifesto becomes the compact that we must speak to. That is the manifesto that the people of this country have chosen. Hon Maimane and your party, we invite you to join us.

    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.
