"Nineteen years into democracy, our government has run out of excuses. We should no longer say it's apartheid's fault. We should get up every morning and recognise we have responsibility. There is no longer the Botha regime looking over our shoulder. We are responsible ourselves...The 'activist background' and 'philosophical outlook' Manuel speaks of here would be that of Communism.
WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO BLAME APARTHEID FOR OUR FAILINGS AS A STATE...
PUBLIC SERVANTS AND WE AS MINISTERS COME FROM THE SAME ACTIVIST BACKGROUND... I HAVE NEVER APPOINTED A PUBLIC REPRESENTATIVE WHO DOESN'T SHARE THE SAME PHILOSOPHICAL OUTLOOK but that has not detracted us from dealing with matters in a very highly professional way."
Like so many Communists before and since, Manuel is Jewish.
