We must therefore accept that there are trade-offs so we will be addressing the past imbalances. Yes, it is uncomfortable, but you must remember that it's not that this government is not addressing the energy crisis. Just last week the President was committing the government to spending R23 billion on energy.
Over and above that - I don't know about Cape Town, the most-talked-about city in the Western Cape - but the patriotic city of Tshwane, which is led by the ANC, has come up with a plan to actually minimise the impact of load shedding. We must assert that if we are going to be patriotic about this country, we are all going to have to address the issues together, rather than lamenting our problems. That is not leadership. [Applause.]
I also want to address you on our Strategic Integrated Project, Sips. You must remember that we are emerging from a broken society, okay? The apartheid separate development was breaking up our society. [Applause.]
