in the ANC conference just like you lost your seat in the National Assembly. You are in the NCOP and I’m going to deal with you. [Interjections.] Mr President, we listened and we did not hear you talk about land clearly. We were right to say you were bluffing and you did not mean anything you said about the land issue. Land, like mineral resources, should be in the custody of the state, and the state must give permission and rights to use the land for a specific purpose. The Fifth Parliament did its work. We went all over the country and listened to our people. They were very clear. They want the land and they want it now. Setswana: Gompieno, eseng leng.

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 311 English: The idea that you redistribute land by giving our people title deeds – you handed them over before the elections – will not resolve the crisis of landlessness. By the way, title deeds for what? Our people in townships are spaceless, with no sanitation, no water, no electricity. If you say you want to give them title deeds, title deeds for what exactly? Our people do not have places to worship. Our kids do not have playgrounds but play in dumpsites. Our youth do not have recreational and sport facilities because of landlessness. Today ... Setswana: ... batsadi ba rona ba batlhakanela mabitla. O fitlhila bo Ramaphosa, bo Zuma, le bo Mokgosi ba tlhakanela mabitla. Ke gore badimo ba rona ba tlhakanela mabitla le magodu. Ga re kgone go fitlhelela matšhwao ... English:

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 312 ... to our ancestors. Mothers, fathers, grandfathers and grandmothers cannot feed their families. With more than 15 million South Africans unable to afford to feed their families because of landlessness, these title deeds our people get are used as fake collateral to get our people to borrow money they can’t afford to repay, and the little pieces of land will end up back in the hands of white-owned banks. If anything, this is a deliberate decision to ridicule black people and land struggles. [Applause.] Mr President, you ridicule black people and their landlessness, yet you tell them to dream about bullet trains and new cities. On what land? That is why we are saying by the end of 2019 the Sixth Parliament should finalise the land question and all the land must be in the custody of the state. The Sixth Parliament must pass the necessary legislation and the EFF will table a land redistribution Act and an agrarian reform Act. We must ensure that the legislation to redistribute land clearly states a minimum of 50% of the land must be controlled by women and youth in particular. [Applause.] We must abolish foreign ownership.

    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.
