ANC EKURHULENI CAUCUS APPLAUDS THE EXECUTIVE ON SKILLS AND EDUCATION DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
29 January 2020
In promoting education as the apex priority in local communities, the ANC caucus commend the City of Ekurhuleni’s Executive Mayor Cllr Mzwandile Masina for continuing to recognize and fund the dedicated learners..
The excellent achievers from all across the City of Ekurhuleni received excellence academic awards in Alberton, on Wednesday, 29 January 2020.
The City’s continuous contribution to education responds to ANC NEC call of declaring the year 2020, a year of education and skills development for a changing world.
The ANC caucus truly commend the efforts by the Office of the Executive Mayor and the entire mayoral committee for the great commitments shown towards the improvement of skills and education in the City of Ekurhuleni.
We note the tremendous contributions by the City through bursaries and scholarships to deserving students.
ANC Caucus is pleased that the community bursary fund increased from R 10 million to R100 million has certainly provided lifetime opportunities not only for young individuals but also to many poor and destitute households in the City.
Our call to intensify the fight against Gender-Based Violence and other social ills is still falling in some deaf ears. We say so because, a week ago, just a stone throw away from this city centre we were awaken with terrible news of a gruesome murder of Laticia Princes Jansen a 15-year-old pupil at Graceland school.
Princes was found in a bush raped and murdered. The ANC Caucus would like to send its sincere condolences to the Jansen’s family and we strongly believe that the perpetrators will be brought to books and justice shall prevail.
Not only must the justice be served but overall wellbeing of our learners at school and their immediate surroundings should be a government obsession.
Our commitment to serve the people of Ekurhuleni remains our standing commitment.
ANC Caucus in Ekurhuleni welcomed the State of the City Address delivered by the Executive Mayor Cllr Mzwandile Masina at the Germiston Council Chamber in OR Tambo Government Precinct Civic Centre – Germiston on Wednesday, 18 March 2020.
