Learners march in demand for a school in Msholozi

Learners from Boschrand Primary School along with their angry parents marched to the Mpumalanga provincial legislature to deliver three memorandums of service delivery demands in Msholozi Informal Settlements.

They demanded that the Department of Education build a proper school in the area, that the Department of Health build a clinic and they also demanded that the Department of Public Works release the land ownership to allow the two departments to make services available.

The learners shouted slogans of being tired of mobile classrooms and demands a proper school to be built. Some of the parents revealed that they pay expensive transport fees every month to take their children to other schools outside White River because the temporal one was overcrowded.

The residents nearly lost their temper when they were told by representatives from the three departments that relevant MECs were not available to receive their memorandums.

“If that is the case we now want our response to all memorandums in three days’ time, not the 14 days which we would have given to the MECs” said the residents.

Party leaders wearing their different regalia threatened to intensify the strike if government did not positively respond to their demands in the stipulated time frame.

Ms Sipho Motau from the Department of Health along with other representatives from the other departments assured the community that they would respond in 48 hours
