of mature political engagement on matters affecting Parliament. We call on all parties here that we must use all structures that are available at our disposal and most importantly the Chief Whips Forum as the most important platform to manage our strategic issues.

South Africa, as a country must be the South Africa that has a South African that is also committed to come out and help the government.

That child will be born in a modern high-tech hospital, most likely in a hospital that has a 3D-scan and she will be surrounded by both her parents there. That same child will soon be taken home in a place that will be protected by private security.
