MEC Lesufi’s department must implement school infrastructure projects to ensure all learners have access to quality education
12 January 2022
The DA is concerned that our learners in Gauteng are being failed by the ANC-led government. After conducting an oversight visit to assess school readiness today, the DA has observed that many learners have still not been placed.
The Department of Infrastructure Development (DID) has failed to build schools on time despite the fact that they are given a sufficient budget.
This is denying our learners an opportunity to learn and access quality education that will enable them to either study further or seek employment opportunities after completing school.
This trend of the DID not completing school infrastructure on time is extremely concerning and the DA will be writing to Premier Makhura to ask him to withdraw school infrastructure projects from the DID.
