Thank you for the opportunity to make a brief closing statement as I conclude my testimony in my capacity as President of the African National Congress.
Before I do so, I would like to pay my respects to the memory of Mr Isaac Mogase, the first Mayor of Johannesburg in a democratic South Africa. Mr Mogase passed
away earlier this week, on Freedom Day.
It is significant to mention his passing at this time because it was in this very chamber that Mr Mogase so ably represented the people of this city, and because he was an
outstanding example of the kind of public representative that the people of our country seek and deserve.
We extend to his family our deepest condolences
