    Whether his department investigated the legal steps that would be necessary to make its intention possible to set a price ceiling for unleaded fuel; if not, why not; if so, what are the findings?
  • Questions asked to the Minister of Mineral Resources 26 Jul 2018

    Madam House Chair, hon Minister, 12 February 2015 marks the day this country became an overly ANC-led securotocracy. We have never been poorer at any other time in the last 20 years in terms of our much- vaunted Constitution.

    Hon Minister, you took an oath to uphold and defend the ...
