Vorster has suggested that there should have been a translator to translate words that Van Sitters was speaking.

“It is an honour for us to have a someone in parliament to say our praises but then we need to have a translator so that all of us can understand the praises he saying,” Vorster said.

Vorster further stated that Khoisan languages have been abandoned and neglected in South Africa.
