fwdk butheleziMy dear friend, Prince Buthelezi, members of Inkatha, ladies and gentlemen.

It is a great honour for me to be able to say a few words during this commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Inkatha Freedom Party.

Inkatha grew from roots deep in the culture of the Zulu people. It takes its inspiration from an organisation first created in 1920 by King Solomon kaDinizulu. It derives its name from the traditional ‘inkatha’ head ring - which includes thatch taken from the dwellings of all the great Zulu indunas and thereby signifies the unity of the Zulu people.

fwdk podiumIt is a great honour for me to address this important meeting of the Bondsraad at the Voortrekker Monument - this national shrine which is so central to the identity, the history and the soul of our people.

It is also an appropriate time to address the Bondsraad. The AB’s predecessor played a central role in the history of our people during the 20th century - first in the revival of Afrikaner nationalism after the First World War and then in the political affairs of the Afrikaner people in the tumultuous years that followed.

NKANDLAIt is not a great surprise that the Minister of Police, Mr Nkosinathi Nhleko, has published a report that whitewashes the expenditure of R246 million on President Zuma’s retirement home.

The report creatively justifies the expenditure of public funds on features such as the swimming pool, the cattle kraal and the amphitheatre.

africa heartsThe FW de Klerk Foundation and its Centre for Constitutional Rights (the CFCR) join the rest of South Africa - and the continent - in celebrating Africa Day on 25 May.

South Africa has been viewed as a leader in Africa, but following the recent spate of xenophobic attacks, this image has been tarnished. Today, as we celebrate all the peoples of Africa, let us be reminded of the fundamental rights and freedoms our society was founded on.

FWDK MotlantheIt is a great honour to share this platform with former President Motlanthe. He is a leader whom I have always respected and who has always in my opinion represented the best traditions of the ANC. 

The time has come for us to speak very frankly about the future of our country.
