Debate on the KZNL Budget 2022

Posted in: on 13/06/2022 | Categorised as

  1. The Minority Front applauds the KZN Legislature for receiving an unqualified audit report.
  2. This term has been disrupted like no other, with recurrent disasters bringing the province to a halt but the KZN Legislature has soldiered on and worked tirelessly, both the Hon. Speaker, the administration and Hon. members.
  3. Notwithstanding cost-cutting measures the Legislature has mastered the ICT opportunities of virtual connectivity to do even more than physical meetings accomplished, especially for stakeholder engagement during sectoral parliaments.
  4. Somehow the quality of life of members and staff has improved with more flexibility in work-life balance, which enhanced the oversight reach and outputs of the Legislature. Thanks to our HR and ICT divisions.
  5. On the other hand, the Legislature buildings are ageing and office space is not conducive hence the need for the envisaged new Legislature is now long overdue.
  6. The Legislature does need a base-line shift appropriate for a modern Legislature to provide for researchers, HR empowerment, ICT, filling of vacant posts and to host visitors.
  7. The personal study needs of each member needs to be reviewed and funding should be flexible, as not all members study but completed studies should be placed in the library.
  8. Like other members have stated, corporate attire and workplace safety attire is appreciated, Hon. Speaker and Secretary.
  9. The MF supports the KZN Legislature’s R644,3 million budget.
  10. Thank you.

Hon. S. Thakur-Rajbansi
