Adv Anton Alberts

Speaker/ Deputy Speaker

Hierdie toespraak is vir my besonder moeilik. Nie net alleen omdat agbare Mario Oriani-Ambrosini ʼn briljante parlementslid en regspraktisyn was nie, maar omdat Mario ʼn baie goeie vriend van my geword het.

Van die oomblik wat ek en Mario mekaar leer ken het in 2009, het ons ... Read more

2014-03-18
Wouter Wessels

Agbare Speaker,

Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen,

This year the ANC is governing South Africa for 20 years. The question is: Are the problems of the country after 20 years fewer or more? Are we better off or worse?
