  • COMMUNICATIONS 14 Nov 2019

    Thank you, Chair. I note that the DA do deserve a position in the committee. House Chair, one of the first things that President Ramaphosa did when taking office during the first term as he joyfully said that the departure of the thief in chief was to merge the Departments ...

  • COMMUNICATIONS 14 Nov 2019

    Hon House Chairperson, on a point of order: I rise in terms of relevance. The hon member is talking about hon Van Damme and the business of the DA. [Interjections.] Can't she focus on the report in front of her? She does not have one, House Chair. I have ...

  • COMMUNICATIONS 14 Nov 2019

    I personally visited the Wierda Park Post Office a month ago. Informal traders are occupying and selling goods from the post box section, which is unlocked and vandalised with vagrants sleeping, urinating and defecating in the area. This is where the customers collect their post. A section of the palisade ...

  • CONSIDERATION OF BUDGETARY REVIEW AND RECOMMENDATION REPORT OF PORTFOLIO COMMITTEE ON COMMUNICATIONS ON TELECOMMUNICATIONS, POSTAL SERVICES AND ENTITIES 12 Nov 2019

    House Chair, in my first BRRR speech in this House six years ago, I asked then Minister Cwele whether the South African government would meet the international deadline of July 2015 to switch off the analogue signal and finally release the digital dividend - of which spectrum is one part of ...

  • CONSIDERATION OF BUDGETARY REVIEW AND RECOMMENDATION REPORT OF PORTFOLIO COMMITTEE ON COMMUNICATIONS ON TELECOMMUNICATIONS, POSTAL SERVICES AND ENTITIES 12 Nov 2019

    Fast forward to today, and if confidence translated into results, we would be downloading a full feature high definition movie in seven seconds flat.

    Instead, and unlike our neighbours in Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia and Botswana, our government is still broadcasting analogue and hasn't released the spectrum, and to add ...

  • CONSIDERATION OF BUDGETARY REVIEW AND RECOMMENDATION REPORT OF PORTFOLIO COMMITTEE ON COMMUNICATIONS 5 Nov 2019

    Deputy Speaker, while millions of South Africans watched the Springboks clinch magnificent victory this weekend, let's not forget that they almost missed watching this match as the SABC didn't have enough money to air any of the other matches. This Rugby World Cup was a stark reminder of ...

  • WRC19. 10 Jul 2019

    House Chairperson, it's delightful to stand in a single Chamber today that is as it should be where all the old split-up departments of Communications and Telecommunications and Postal Services are here under one roof, debating as one. Even President Ramaphosa didn't wait for any sunrise, any new ...

  • NATIONAL ASSEMBLY THURSDAY, 14 MARCH 2019 14 Mar 2019

    Thank you, House Chair. The hon member is misleading the House, the apartheid government took over in 1948, so that is not 300 years. [Interjections.] So, if she could be historically accurate, it would be appreciated. Perhaps the colour she is wearing might have influenced her decision. Thank you. [Interjections.]
