PHOTO-OP ON STEPS
01.15.20 WS OF GROUP ON STEPS - CHIEFS BEHIND
01.15.35 MANDELA: There are circumstances in SAì
differ radically from that of traditional leadersì
in the rest of Africa. We should put them on theì
same position as other members of parliament whoì
have uniform salaries, who are provided withì
official residences & transport....
01.16.34 ...if AMAKHOSI is going to be respectedì
they must be placed in this position instead ofì
living in houses which leaves must to be desired..
01.16.57 ...tomorrow Cabinet is going to discussì
the payment of AMAKHOSI
01.17.26 ...we have inherited a debt of about R250ì
billion incurred by the previous gorv & we spendì
R28 billion/year servicing that debt...
01.18.28 ...whilst I have taken account of theì
views they have expressed...this Bill is going toì
be discussed tomorrow & my intention is that itì
should be introduced in this parliament & becomeì
01.22.51 MINISTER OF PROVINCIAL AFFAIRS &ì
CONSTITUTIONAL DEVELOPMENT, ROELF MEYER
01.23.19 ...we have received responses from all 6ì
premiers, 5 of them indicated that they areì
supporting the Bill & only the Premier ofì
Kwazulu-Natal was against the support of the Bill
01.25.03 4 of the 6 provinces - some of theì
traditional authorities are in fact beenì
renumerated by the central gorv through my deptì
Those 4 provinces are Eastern Transvaal,ì
Northwest, Freestate and Kwazulu-Natal...
01.25.35 ...whole matter requires rationalisation
01.26.01 BUTHELEZI: I can just say in a nutshellì
01.26.30 ...for us in Kwazulu-Natal that was notì
01.27.33 ...you've heard the President say thatì
the Bill tomorrow will be passed byì
Cabinet...which means...what AMAKHOSI said is ofì
no consequence at all...
01.27.51 ...I never expected that we're goingì
through the same charades...where we were calledì
to be consulted...we were told by the Apartheidì
regime No No No. Consultation does not meanì
consent, when we consulted you we didn't expectì
you to consent...
01.28.36 PREMIER AND AMAKHOSI HAVE REJECTED THISì
01.28.43 ...it's going to be forced on us while weì
are opposed to it...
01.29.17 ...pointed out by President...that I willì
pay them whether they like it or not...we are inì
power; the gorv will do it whether you like it orì
01.29.58 ...there cannot be any reconciliation...
01.30.21 ...whether the gorv is white or blackì
there is no way in which we'll accept what isì
forced on us...
01.30.26 ...personally I'm very depressed becauseì
I can see no brightness at the end of the darkì
