Minister - Speech - Meeting of the South African Sports and Confederation Olympic Committee - 7 February 2012
It is with a great sense of reverence and veneration for me to address this important gathering this morning especially on the eve of the preparations of the SASCOC Annual General Meeting (AGM) later in the year. We would like to take this opportunity to thank SASCOC for extending an invitation to us to be with you in this august event. As we have said that 2012 is the year of elections and our country stand on the threshold of exciting and challenging times ahead of us. The times ahead calls for strong leadership as everything will stand and fall on leadership during this trying period.
