UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 267 Umuntu umuzwa esekhuluma khona lapha ukuthi akukho lutho [Uhleko.] English: In anyway, President Arthur reminds us that the truth passes through three stages. Firstly, it is ridiculed, then it is violently opposed, and thirdly, it is accepted as being self- evident. Just like the Malawian boy who brought electricity to his village was once declared crazy. He is today celebrated as a hero. We will build the smart city just like we brought electricity to rural Kwa-Zulu Natal whilst others were still saying ... IsiZulu: ... ugesi uzoxhopha izinkomo. [Ihlombe.] English: Today they enjoy this electricity just like they will enjoy the bullet train.

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 268 adversity, we triumphed as the people. Mr President, out of nothing comes nothing but out of a dream comes a reality of a close future. What we can envisage is what we can build and make it a reality. Thank you. [Applause.] Mr M G P LEKOTA: Deputy Chairperson of the National Council of Provinces, hon President ...

Hon President, hon Deputy President and members of the House, last Thursday I thought that a major opportunity was missed. As I listened to hon Cele, the Minister of Police, I understood even more why. You made a paramount point that we urgently need to create jobs. No economy can create jobs without its primary industries, in particular, mining and agriculture. He said, in his speech here just now, that some R41 billion worth of gold has been taken out of our economy in the past year by the zama zamas. These zama zamas are, otherwise, loyal

UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 269 working people who, as a result of disinvestment and other things, have not forgotten where they were working and where the gold was. They are now illegally mining and taking that money. That R41 billion going to Dubai is being produced by our workers who are now unemployed as a result of disinvestment of people that were frightened amongst others – that is not the only reason – by the threat that their properties will be taken. Those who left with their money left them unemployed, but they didn’t forget the connection between themselves and those workers. They continue to illegally encourage those people to go underground to dig the gold and diamonds and get that out of our economy. Now we have to get police to arrest these people who, if they had legitimate work, would not be chased by police.

    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.
