Those who derive pleasure or entertainment from such circus are guilty of myopia and have no interest on the future of our nation at heart.
President Zuma has presented to the nation one of the most important addresses of his presidency, full of hope, progressive interventions to address the socio-economic challenges confronting South Africa and key declarations of intent to advance our nation. It is a blatant dereliction of duty for some opposition MPs to disregard such important content in favour of personal attacks, spurious claims and shameless grandstanding.
The conduct of some opposition MPs is a flagrant abuse of parliamentary rules and our democracy. They deny the voices of the constituencies they claim to represent an opportunity to be heard in Parliament.
