State of the Province Address Debate and reply:

Today we held the State of the Province debate in a hybrid sitting in Gendadendal. My reply to the debate is available to view here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JwQixDYjK4

I would like to thank the people of Genadendal, and the Emil Weder school for hosting us over the past two days, and the Western Cape Provincial Parliament and all its members for allowing us the opportunity to outline the Western Cape Government's plans for dignity, safety, and jobs in the year ahead.
