THE Free State government will employ 28 Cuban doctors in health facilities across the province, says Premier Ace Magashule.

On Wednesday (02/03), Magashule was responding to arguments raised during the state of the province debate last week in the Free State Legislature.

Magashule bashed the DA and said the provincial government would continue to employ Cuban nationals despite criticism from opposition parties.

“The DA can make noise, jump high and low, we are governing,” said Magashule.

The premier spent the better part of his address on the atrocities of the apartheid system and the achievements of the ANC-led government.

Magashule accused the DA of hypocrisy and double standards after it had laid criminal charges against the EFF at a police station in Cape Town for alleged recent incitement of violence.

The DA laid the charges after one of the leaders of the EFF had posted a message on social media on how to make a petrol bomb.

“The DA will run to the ANC when the EFF takes the land of its members,” said Magashule.

Magashule applauded FF+ member of the Free State Legislature, Wouter Wessels, for his input in trying to build a better South Africa.

The premier said the ANC was not shaken by the “vote of no confidence” campaign led by the DA and said the party would continue to support President Jacob Zuma.

Quoting the minister of Economic Development, Ebrahim Patel, the premier said government was building 942 houses daily throughout the country.

Magashule said government had delivered on its promises to the citizens of the country and highlighted several education and health infrastructures built by the provincial government over the past 20 years.

He further said government was focusing on developing township entrepreneurs in a bid to boost the local economy.

Following Magashule’s address, DA member of the Free State Legislature Roy Jankielsohn, said Magashule had made a feeble attempt at a history lesson instead of responding to the real concerns of the people of the province.
