The South African Democratic Student Movement
(SADESMO) has applauded the appointment of Peggy Nkonyeni as MEC
"We are delighted by this appointment as it is
clear that Education in KwaZulu-Natal is undergoing a crisis and
we need someone who is going to step up and work to change this
situation for the better, for learners in KZN" said SADESMO's
National Academic Officer, Nonkululeko Nkwanyana.
"Schools in the rural areas are faced with a
lot of challenges, as there is a lack of knowledge about ways or
means in which they are able to further their Education for a
brighter future," added Nkwanyana.
"We as SADESMO hope that Miss Nkonyeni's
agenda puts the interests of students first and keeps education
free of political agendas," said Nkwanyana.
"We wish her well as she sees to it that all
schools are properly resourced, that muddy schools are properly
rebuilt and teachers are well compensated to avoid unnecessary
strikes," she concluded.
