Speech - 2018 Budget Vote Speech - MInister Xasa

The total budget for 2018/19 is R 1.091 billion having gone up only by R 24.1 million from the previous year’s allocation which is a 2.19 percent growth. An overview of sport development in the past 22 years of democratic governance of the country, reveals many “quick win” achievements with primarily short term gains and benefits. Whilst these were important for the transition from apartheid to democratic governance, they are insufficient for building and harnessing the developmental approach to sport to the point where sustainable broad-based social and economic impact can be seen. This includes consolidating the momentum gained in the successful hosting of the FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup and other international events prior to the World Cup Event. We want to bring back the lessons from the World Cup, bring back all critical role players to understand the mandate of Sport and Recreation and work together in collaboration. Make South Africa an active and winning Nation.
