[Interjections.] [Applause.] The SPEAKER: Please take your seat, sir. Hon Mazzone, please continue. [Applause.] Order! Order! Ms N W A MAZZONE: Speaker, South African to South African, this is the straw that breaks the camel’s back. This is that one step too far. This is the proof that the Zuma faction is still well and truly in charge of the ANC ... [Interjections.] ... and that it matters not if the driver has changed — the bus is the same.

Prove that you are indeed the master of your fate, that you are the captain of your soul, and that you are not being led by the nose by factions in your party.

Now is not the time for mere dreams. We dare not allow ourselves to be silenced for our work is far from over.

    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.
