By Bosman Grobler DA MPL, Mpumalanga legislature:
The following motion was delivered in the Mpumalanga Legislature today by, Bosman Grobler DA MPL
I hereby rise to move a motion without notice on behalf of the Democratic Alliance.
Hon. Speaker, students from Bongokuhle Primary School and Njeyeza High School have for many years been using a broken water pipe and stones to cross a young muddy stream to get to school from their village in Schoemansdal.
Noting that when there are heavy rains, these students are either forced to take a long way to school or not go to school at all.
Hon. Speaker, the DA in Nkomazi has subsequently decided to do something about it, and we have built a bridge to allow the students better and safer access to education. This bridge is now being used not only by the students, but by residents from all neighbouring villages.
As such, I move that this house congratulates the DA for this initiative, as access to education is a basic human right and the DA will continue to be the champion of human rights.
I so move.
