It is just about ten days before the beginning of the Class of 2010 matric final examinations. 2010 has been a year full of events, some interesting and others strainous. These events like the 2010 World Cup soccer tournament, service delivery protests, the public sector strike and recently the Commonwealth Games had their different impacts on particularly the education sector. This therefore needed a lot of effort from different educational stake-holders to ensuring that we as a country and the province we achieve desirable year-end results possible with an improved pass rate.
The African National Congress has noted with regret the very unfortunate media statement by the South African Students Congress (SASCO) accusing the Mpumalanga`s Departments of Agriculture, Education and Health and Welfare of under-performance and subsequently calling for the replacement of the responsible MECs.
The African National Congress has noted and welcomes the recent development where four suspects have been arrested and appeared in court for allegedly being involved in the assassination of Cde Jimmy Mohlala at his home in kaNyamazane in January 2009. We believe that this development will help bring to an end the speculations that have to a greater extent made the people of Mpumalanga look into one another with suspicion and distrust, which have a potential to cause instability and uneasiness in the province.
