ANC EKURHULENI CHIEF WHIP’S INTERVENTION YIELD RESULTS
26 July 2018
As the ANC Ekurhuleni Caucus welcomes the Executive Mayor Cllr Mzwandile Masina’s first Quarter of 2018/19 Financial Year tabled at Germiston Council Chambers on 26 July 2018. The ANC Caucus is encouraged that through radical decision taken to ensure that more young people from across gain access to institutions of higher learning. After the 2016 local govern elections, the ANC led government increased the bursary allocation from R10 million to R100 million. This has become evident that more than 800 young people have been afforded an opportunity to pursue their studies. ANC Caucus strongly believes that by ensuring that more young are educated this will surely benefit the municipality and their families through the knowledge and skills as they would have been empowered.
Cindy Dube from Ward 85 is one many young people who took an opportunity to apply when the window was opened last year. She is now a student at Vaal University of Technology and studying towards National Diploma in Sports Management. Expressing her gratitude in a letter written to ANC Chief Whip Cllr Jongizizwe Dlabathi, she said, “today I am proud member of the Ekurhuleni bursary holder which I have to admit that it really saved me. If it was not for this bursary by now I would have been part of the statistics of varsity drop outs due to being able to pay for my fees”. In her first year, she was using a NSFAS but unfortunately she could not be funded due to certain complications.
