1) Speech by @MTLekota #SONA2019Debate
Last week the President was on this spot here when he invited me among others to join him, I don’t know to what trip.
I do want to say to the President today, I was a bit puzzled that you introduced Rooseveld in all of that you spoke about.
2) I’d like to say that we must come back to South Africa, because I was never in the United States to struggle., we struggled here.- @MTLekota Lekota #SONA2019Debate #SONA2019
3) And I do want to say to you Mr President, that we were invited on a trip of struggle by the preeminent leader of the students of our time, the late Steve Biko who said we must fight the struggle- @MTLekota #Lekota #SONADebate #Sonadebate2019
4) He[Biko] said to us ”in case of danger or living conditions that threaten human life, we must accept life for what it is or not at all. “It did not take very long, that was around 1972.-@MTLekota #Lekota #SONADebate #SONA2019Debate
5) In 1974, we went into detention among others & in the course of that we had to respond to this challenge and I want to say to you ... you invited me last week.We had to respond to that challenge- your invitation last week was late-@MTLekota #Lekota #SONADebate #SONA2019Debate
6)The challenge we needed to respond to was that time and you with us in detention.

When it was difficult, you wrote to the special branch, that we put communist ideas in your head. In doing so, you condemned us to the special branch #SONA2019 #Lekota
7) I say this to you because the special branch rewarded you as they always rewarded their victims and they sent you home and we headed to Robben Island

You should have responded- @MTLekota #SONADebate #SONADebate2019
8)This invitation that you are issuing on Friday, you should have issued then. We should have travelled together to the island to serve years for the struggle of our people-@MTLekota #Lekota #SONA2019 #SONADebate2019
9) I will not join you because you made your choice then- @MTLekota #Lekota #SONA2019 #Sonadebate2019
10) That was the time the choices were made. I made my choice to go down with our people, you made your choice to go with them-@MTLekota #Lekota #Sonadebate2019
11) Now you are inviting us to go join you in the corruption of Bosasa and in the corruption of all these things you have been doing with others-@MTLekota #Lekota #Sonadebate2019 #SONADebate
12) I am sorry sir, I will stay with the people in Khayelitsha, in Diepsloot and Soweto and so on. The day we get out of thereit will not be to go the flesh paths of Egypt, it will go to go with our people where freedom is there for everybody- @MTLekota @COPE_SA #SONADebate
13) I’m grateful you are here -

I'm grateful you are a billionaire, keep the billionaires and thank you for them, but we are not going to part with you. I am not joining your trip- @MTLekota @COPE_SA #Lekota #SONADebate #SONADebate2019
