mandela day guest speaker

Hlomela Bucwa

South Africa’s youngest Member of Parliament. Hlomela Bucwa (Class of 2010) made her maiden speech in Parliament on 21st February 2017. Hlomela told Bulelwa Dayimani, a Destiny Connect journalist, that her political journey started in high school. Although at the time she had no idea that she would end up in Parliament, she knew that she wanted to fight for the rights of others. Bucwa says it was when she started learning about South African history and about the apartheid regime that she realised that she wanted to become a civil rights lawyer. She enrolled for a law degree at NMMU and she got involved in student politics. She adds that she understands what a huge responsibility it is, as she no longer speaks for herself, but for many young people back at home: “I now need to be an example; look it doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, but if you have a passion and you want to make a difference, you can.”
Extract from her Maiden Speech: “I am moved by WB Yeats’ call to action which cries to me, “But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; tread softly because you tread on my dreams.” These are the words echoed by my fellow young South Africans. These are words of a generation whose dreams have been denied, whose hope has been diminished, whose trust has been broken, whose talents have been crippled.  These are the words of a lost generation.... we are faced with a stark reality, a reality of a collapsing basic education system that fails to teach our children the very basics, never mind how to be critical thinkers. We are taught to look for jobs and not to create them. We are taught to be employees and not employers...  it is this generation – my generation – that will change the status quo.”
