The Inkatha Freedom Party supports National Intervention by the
Department of Basic Education within the Eastern Cape Education
The bottom line is that the Eastern Cape Education Department is
failing its learners at an unprecedented rate.
Poorly developed and grossly sub-standard and unsafe school
buildings coupled with poor maintenance and service delivery for a
number of years is a shocking indictment on the way the Eastern Cape
Education Department has been run over the last few years.
The National department must step in urgently in order to rectify
this situation and the IFP will fully support such interventions.
I thank you.
