The address will follow a series of public participation engagements by the National Ministers and Deputy Ministers in Limpopo. These visits resulted from a resolution formally passed by the NCOP to have a special sitting in Limpopo from 31 October to 4 November 2005. This forms part of the “Taking Parliament to the People” programme, launched in 2002 to provide an opportunity for ordinary people to take part in Parliament.
