      Now let the debate start on the points that i have highlighted This debate does not make sense at all.Mr Mantashe we should be dabating about the education,economy,crime,and how can we use our geogrphical position to our economic advantage so on and so forth.This argument of heritage is not gonna grow the economy of this country.Please lets move forward contribute ideas about the future of this country.Why do we keep on marking time about something that does not affect the economy ,education etc.!1948 japan was no where to be found ,but they manage to rise and built their country.they never stopped and comlain about the americans.I'M ASKING WHY DON"T WE TAKE ALEAF FROM THEM.ANC please channel your energy in constructive ideas

    Great news for now. We must keep the pressure up until it either gets a major change (eg public interest defence) or gets binned

    Oh wonderful wonderful wonderful!!!!!!! I have to say, I can almost not believe it. Stuff like this slowly restores the faith...

      Do not ever have your faith restored whilst the ANC is around. They cannot be trusted.

    Remember how the ANC fought the apartheid media gag in the old days? Never thought they would now do the same. How many apartheid systems had been revived and even tightened by the paranoic ANC lately? What happened to the freedom of the Freedom-struggle? Quite amazing.
