Hon Speaker, in response to the statement made by the hon Bhoola, I think the Member of Parliament is right. That is an issue of the Western Cape's story of politics of deception and the DA that has, in fact, lost its credibility.
The fact that the member of the executive council, MEC, of education of the province has gone to court to ask it to overrule the fact that the Department of Education in the province should ensure safety at the schools, shows the credibility problem. We have said that if any child dies at school in Manenberg, precisely because of gangsterism, it will definitely be laid at the door of the premier who has decided to go to court.
The issue of Mitchells Plain and the education crisis is not only about 500 learners but, in fact, about 1 500 learners who are not in class as we are speaking today, at least a month and a half now.
When the premier of the province spoke about refugees, there was a spike of racism in the Colorado area by the subcouncil leadership in the metropolitan. In fact, we are saying that this shows again the "swart gevaar" tactics coming out in its most brutal form. What would it be like? It will, in fact, lead to a very serious problem amongst the people of Colorado and informal settlements. Those are issues we will be addressing. [Applause.] [Interjections.]
