The IFP in KwaZulu Natal wishes the class of
2013 matriculants the best for their exams and a peaceful and
successful examination period.
IFP Shadow MEC for Education, Mr Mntomuhle
Khawula, MPL, said "All our learners have worked hard in the
past ten months and this is the time for them to reap the
benefits of their hard work. It's also not solely about the past
ten months, but also about the hard work of the past nine years
and ten months of school life."
The IFP has always maintained that education
is the key to success and the liberation of our people from
ignorance, poverty and disease. Even during the days of the
struggle, the IFPYB motto was "Education for Liberation."
Khawula continued, "South Africa today needs
young people who are highly skilled so that they can be able to
appropriately take the country forward as the capable leaders of
tomorrow. The time is now for them to prepare for their future.
We are also crossing our fingers that the sudden change of
political heads in the department at MEC level will not have a
negative devastating effect to the progress of our learners."
The IFP also wishes to express gratitude to
all the educators who have also worked hard to prepare the
learners for exams, and the parents for their guidance. The IFP
hopes that with these exams, KwaZulu Natal education will be
able to go back to our glory days under the IFP, when the
province had a good pass percentage in matric.
