None of this is easy. These are tough decisions. That’s why it hasn’t happened. So, instead of talking about real tough reforms, we maybe talk about dreams, we maybe talk about a faster horse; as others on Twitter described it, we maybe talk about Wakanda. [Laughter.] Fellow South Africans, our nation is in deep crisis. And I believe we can it around if we are willing to act now and make decisive choices. We can begin by building a modernized African country comprised of strong individuals who are able to compete with the best in the world. Setswana : Ba ntse ba bua ba re ...

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 26 English : ... the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time to plant a tree is today. We need to plant the trees for the future of our children; knowing that we, ourselves, may never sit under those trees, but we must plant them today.

We must immediately split Eskom into two entities and have one company for distribution and another for build. We must allow independent power producers to come on board.

[Applause.] The second reform I want to propose is that I want to propose a reform to our education. Fellow South Africans, we have to introduce charter schools. What charter schools are, are a private-public partnership that allows for our children to be able to walk to schools closer to them, that can give them a quality of education that is private school compared.

    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.
