I would like to congratulate the MEC for cooperative governance, human settlement and traditional affairs (Coghsta), Ishmael Kgetjepe, for placing Mogalakwena Municipality under administration, according to section 139 1 (b) of the constitution that states that when a municipality does not fulfil an executive obligation, the provincial government may intervene by taking appropriate steps to correct the situation.

Our home languages are something we should be proud of and embrace at all time.
I would like to caution those who did not register to vote that they have forfeited the right to complain about a lack of service delivery.
It is true that we live in turbulent times where a lot of business owners are uncertain about the future of their businesses, especially when considering the number of businesses that are closing doors daily.
Recent service delivery protests have sparked me to ask myself whether we as South Africans understand what is entailed in a democratic country, or what democracy means.
The reality today is that a lot of businesses are failing on a daily basis (on average about 78% of newly established businesses, which amounts to about three in every five businesses closing their doors).
It is really amazing to see young South Africans doing something positive with their lives by using their talents.
