Chairperson, on behalf of KwaZulu-Natal we recognise the work that Cuba has done to contribute to the health of the people of the province by providing an education to medical doctors and many other personnel and accepting our young people for training in Cuba. We therefore feel that if Cuba is in trouble, we, as South Africa, and not only the people of KwaZulu-Natal, should be true friends. The people of South Africa have benefited from the contribution of Cuba socially and in terms of health and education. There can be no question about that.
The DA is being malicious by choosing friends for the people of South Africa in favour of the capitalist countries. They don't raise these issues against any country that is a capitalist country, except to say to the people of South Africa that the ideology of ubuntu is a useless philosophy or ideology. The people of South Africa must take the DA for what it is: It rejects anything that helps and empowers people, as well as anything that recognises that the people of South Africa are people too. They should also adopt ubuntu as a concept for Africa. [Applause.]
