Quotes

"The Terrorism Act's definition is ridiculously overboard," says Mlungisi Makhanya. "It does not follow international norms on the combat of terrorism" . He is the Secretary General of the People's United Democratic Movement
"It was from this building that the first Parliament started on its brutal journey of colonialism and dispossession. It was here that the Union (of SA) was created in 1910 that excluded Africans, Coloureds and Indians. It was here that apartheid triumphed. It was in this building that in 1994 we had the first truly representative government inaugurated" she said
EFF leader Julius Malema was not spared, but he gave as much as he got, calling Mbalula a hypocrite "who is never true to any boss because he lacks a backbone"
