Heelwat artikels word oor swart bemagtiging geskryf omdat dit ons direk raak en menseregte skend. Daar is heelwat organisasies sowel as regeringsinstansies wat dit bevorder en 100% befonds. KAS is een van drie sover vasgestel is daar uit Duitsland en vriende met FW de Klerk. George Soros befonds rewolusie al vir jare nie net in SA nie. Sy organisasie befonds swart bemagtiging sowel Parlement en Grondwet (wat kwansuis demokraties is) . Hoe kom ons hieruit? Met ons eie onafhanklike gebiede. Ons het ‘n internasionale reg daartoe.

That brings me to the crucial matter of affirmative action. The hon Manie said …
Hy sê ons jaag spoke op; kyk na die syfers, hoe baie wit mense is nog in die werk. Maar in dieselfde asem sê hy daardie syfers moet omgekeer word; dit moet totaal verander word. [He says we are invoking spectres; look at the figures, how many white people are still working. But in the same breath he says those figures must be turned around; they must be changed totally.]
One of the stated aims of the Employment Equity Act is to transform the workforce of South Africa to such an extent that it will be representative of the demographics of the population. What is the impact of this aim?
En hier gee ek graag erkenning aan mnr Dirk Hermann van Solidariteit vir die volgende inligting. [And here I take pleasure in acknowledging Mr Dirk Hermann of solidarity for the following information.]
Using information from Statistics SA’s 1996 Census, it was determined that whites form 12,2% of South Africa’s population between the ages of 15 and 65, the potentially economically active age group.
According to the aim of the Act, whites should thus constitute 12,2% of the workforce, while at present 20,4% of the force is white. This implies a surplus of 750 000 whites in the labour market, if measured against the ultimate aim of the Act. In terms of the Act this imbalance should be corrected. The question is how it can happen without discriminating unfairly against whites and without creating a new disadvantaged community. The best way would be for the economy to grow to such an extent that thousands of job opportunities can be created. Unfortunately our economic growth is lower than the population growth, making this impossible.
The only remaining option to meet the demands of the Act, is to replace the 750 000 whites with blacks. Even if the decision is made not to dismiss whites, but to wait for the normal processes of resignation and retirement, it will take, according to Dr Louis Botma of Free State University, up to 30 years. The aim of the Act could therefore have dire consequences for all young whites trying to enter the labour market over the next 30 years.
Hon Minister, can you answer this question today, once and for all: Are you going to revise this aim of the Act? Is this part of the unforeseen consequences of the labour policy that should be revised? Or must white South Africans accept the reality that they are overstocked? Can you say yes, with 750 000 in the labour market and that this figure is to be worked off in future? If so, what is your government’s plan with these 750 000 whites whom you so often call part of the people to whom South Africa belongs? I thank you.
For its part, my department will confidently and enthusiastically continue to steer our country in the direction dreamed of by the majority of South Africans, recognising that this race is a marathon not a sprint. The distance is long and the surface on which we run is rough, but hardly a day goes by without us reducing the distance still to be covered. [Applause.]
For this reason I do want to thank those who made these advances possible. I want to thank our director-general, Adv Ramashia the Free State. Stand up, mama. Let Groenewald see you. [Applause.] the Free State. Stand up, mama. Let Groenewald see you. [Applause.]
I say that he must see you, because the ANC has never had its struggle against white people. [Applause.] Ever since its inception in 1912, our struggle was against racism. [Applause.] The reason why we are firm Africans is precisely because of the problem that was created by your fathers. If there was no apartheid, then there would be no need for affirmative action.
Mr Groenewald, you are suffering from conveniently selective amnesia as well. [Laughter.] It is because we want to undo what your ancestors did through the job reservations Act – remember that, Mnr Groenewald – that we are embarking on an affirmative action programme precisely because of what your fathers did. [Interjections.] He cites sporadic cases of two white students allegedly discriminated against. Has he forgotten that it was his ancestors who promulgated the Bantu Education Act that was aimed at making blacks the hewers of and his hard-working team which is sitting there with him, and our new – very new – executive managing director in wood and drawers of water? How can you forget that? [Interjections.]
Is he aware that the majority of those who are poor and unemployed are black youth? Is he aware that this phenomenon was not occasioned by an accident of history, but engineered by a racist regime? He belonged to that racist regime. [Interjections.] [Applause.]
Let me proudly tell you, my brother, that the ANC wants a nonracial, democratic and nonsexist South Africa. If you read the Constitution of the ANC – 2.1 of that Constitution – you will see that our main objective is to unite the people of this country, blacks and Africans in particular.
The MINISTER OF LABOUR: Affirmative action, my brother, we will continue with. We will affirm the blacks that you with your ancestors have tried to undermine.
Ons is nie domkoppe nie. Ons is slim. [Applous.] [We are not stupid. We are clever. [Applause.]]
[The land is ours! The country is ours! We must all enjoy the niceties of this country, whether you like it or not, Groenewald. Your children are going to enjoy life in a free country because of the national organisation, the ANC. You are leading your children towards hell. [Applause.]]
Asijiki. Siya phambili, nokuba sekumnyam’ entla. [Kwaqhwatywa.] [We are not turning back. We are moving forward no matter what. [Applause.]]
That the ANC has more than 90 years of experience in resistance we have to remind people that:
[The ANC is a people’s organisation of peace, whose objective is to free people of this country from the shackles and chains of struggle and oppression. The ANC is wide awake. Do not dare bother it.]
[The ANC is no different from the thorns of the prickly pear if and when it is not handled with care by those who sneer at it. [Interjections.]]
Given the significance of this matter, my department is confronting the issue head-on, as evidenced by the fact that since the beginning of 2001 to date, a total of not less than 3,1 million people have received training relevant to their work or relevant to trades and occupations they aspire to enter into.
Members will recall that last year we announced that over a billion rand had been allocated to strategic projects being managed by 18 Setas.
Training funded by the department through our provincial offices supported the training of a total of 78 467 people, of which 48 119 were youth and 2 504 were people with disabilities. About 3 265 scholars were given bursaries to address the problem of scarce skills.
