WATER PROVISION IN PHUMELELA A MUST! Government visited Vrede, in the Phumelela local municipality yesterday on the 11th of June. The mayor, Ntate Tlokotsi Motaung, had requested us to visit the area and have a look at the challenges that the municipality is grappling with, chief amongst them being water shortage. On arrival, we were taken to the dam, which is the main source of water, but at 3% capacity, it is almost empty. In the absence of water in the dam, the municipality has drilled boreholes to assist and ensure that residents get constant supply of water. We were shown a total of 13 boreholes which shed 2000 litres per hour. However, given the population, which is nearly 20 000, this may not be enough. That is why a decision was taken that 15 000 litre water tanks will be placed in schools and throughout the area also. We hope that this intervention will assist residents of Vrede until such a time that the rains come and fill up the dam. We also brought 20 litre hand sanitisers, food parcels, face masks as well as grocery vouchers to the people of Vrede We also visited De Jagger Distillery in Frankfort where they manufacture sanitizers. In addition to creating employment to the locals, Sophia De Jagger, one of the directors, said that for every bottle of sanitizer sold, R1 goes to local schools. Such initiatives are welcome because we have always maintained that government cannot do everything on its own. We therefore welcome any partnership that will ensure that our communities are empowered. COVID-19 will be with us for some time. We all must play a role in ensuring that it does not claim any more lives. The infections keep rising. With the rise in infections, comes deaths. At the moment, 10 people in our province have lost their lives. Many more could also die, unless we change our behaviour. Ka kopo, dulang mahaeng a lona. Wash your hands regularly and maintain social distance. I would like to thank MECs Gadija Brown, William Bulwane, Thembeni Nxangisa and Makalo Mohale for accompanying me. Thank you.

HAPPY YOUTH MONTH! Today marks the beginning of Youth Month. The tragic events which unfolded of this month 44 years ago are well documented. It was on 16 June 1976 when true to their nature, apartheid-era police unleashed their violence on unarmed school children whose only crime was to demand an end to Afrikaans being used as a medium of instruction in schools. The horror of that day, marked by bullet riddled bodies of children strewn on the ground, with gaping bullet holes on their tiny bodies, is still fresh in our minds. That is why we are constantly working hard to ensure the emancipation of the youth in our province. In honour of those brave young people, our government has rightfully dedicated this month to the youth of our country. Ordinarily, on the 16th of June, this day would be commemorated, however, given the extraordinary circumstances that we all find ourselves in with the outbreak of COVID-19, Youth Month commemorations as we have come to know and celebrate them, at least for this year, are well and truly over. Today, on the first day of Youth Month, I visited Falesizwe Secondary School in Namahadi, Frankfort to look at the school’ state of readiness for the reopening of schools. We were given a tour of the school and generally, we are satisfied. However, we registered our concerns with the school management and made it clear that those matters ought to be addressed before Monday, 08 June 2020. We have assurance from the school management that those matters will be addressed. I was also pleased with the technology centre at the school which is fully equipped with computers and gadgets. This will set our children on the path of Fourth Industrial Revolution. ￼ We have heard the concerns of parents and they are quite understandable. I understand why there is panic and that is precisely why government is pulling out all the stops to make sure that, when our children return to school next week, they will be safe. We are however pleading with parents to also play a part in ensuring that children, for the next few days, stay at home. There has been a steady rise in confirmed cases in our province. We are currently sitting on 266 confirmed cases
