2017-10-18
Dr Pieter Mulder

Women's Day in South Africa must celebrate the role and struggle of all women in the country's history, not just those of the ANC.

Begrotingsposdebat: Basiese onderwys / Budget vote debate: Basic Education

2017-05-24
Adv Anton Alberts

Geagte voorsitter en minister,

Minister, addressing you every year seems like dejavu. Every time the very same issues emerge and every year we try to provide some advice. Despite, this the parlous state of basic education is not getting any better. This country still faces the cliff of climbing... Read more


Budget vote debate: Agriculture - Save agriculture by decisions based on facts, not based on political propaganda and myths

2017-05-24
Dr Pieter Mulder

Recently, a prominent leader said that the strategic necessities to avoid a revolution and conflict in South Africa are good defence, police and intelligence. He is wrong. The strategic necessities are not defence, police and intelligence. It is water, energy and food security through agriculture.... Read more


Begrotingsposdebat: Kuns en Kultuur / Budget Vote Debate: Arts and Culture

2017-05-23
Dr Pieter Mulder

Chairperson,

Under the leadership of this minister many entities of his department moved from clean audits to qualified audits. From the taxpayer’s perspective and from a media perspective, this reflects very badly on the present minister. If I wanted to play cheap politics, I must ask that... Read more

Adv Anton Alberts

2017-05-23
Adv Anton Alberts

Voorsitter,

2017-05-16
Adv Anton Alberts

Voorsitter,

Minister, sedert u die portefeulje oorgeneem het, het niks vir die beter verander nie. Ons hoor steeds net van transformasie, nou genoem radikale ekonomiese transformasie, maar wat eintlik net kode is vir die intensifisering van die stroping van bates tot voordeel van ‘n paar... Read more
