The IFP Gauteng province (IFPGP) welcomes the
Gauteng's school building project spearheaded by the Department
of Infrastructure Development, intended for building 27 new
schools in the next few years. We are pleased that the R700m has
been set aside for this project and ask that this building
project be properly monitored and evaluated against corrupt
individuals and that our nation's treasure (children) will
benefit from it.
IFP Caucus Leader in the Gauteng Provincial
Legislature (GPL) Bonginkosi Dhlamini said "We are delighted to
hear the news of the province finally addressing the problem of
insufficient infrastructural development in Gauteng schools.
With the excessive demand for schooling primarily created by the
consistent influx of families from other provinces as shown in
the 2011 Statistics SA, this large injection of R700m into the
construction of schools couldn't have come at a better time, and
will without doubt go a long way in dealing with the dreadful
scarcity of schools in this province."
IFPGP now urges the province and State to
improve on the quality of education being given to our children
and that the whole education system begins to be treated as a
vital cog in advancing Gauteng 2055 Provincial development plan.
