Correctional Services spokesman Manelisi Wolela has denied allegations that student leader Mcebo Dla.
When Aggrey Klaaste exploded onto the scene with his Seek Ye The Kingdom of Heaven First, South Africa was going through the birth pains of a new political order. Klaaste drew attention to ordinary people whose daily toil is unrecognised and unrewarded.
It is for this reason that I read with appreciation your story on Sizwile School for the Deaf. I found it fitting and inspiring that the principal identified the need to make the Klaaste legacy live on by finding uniforms for marginalised pupils. A properly dressed pupil feels good and may well become an achiever. Sowetan's Parenting Corner on February 19 also complements Klaaste's ideal.
QwaQwa needs such municipal-mayoral intervention. The communities can benefit from labour intensive municipal infrastructural development with labour drawn from communities. This way, marginalised parents can have an income that will help them complement Parenting Corner to make life better. Community development is the heartbeat of municipal delivery to ensure sweeping victories for the ANC in the next election.
Klaaste's legacy is well documented through Sizwile. We hear Klaaste's message and tireless toil to make life better for all as the Freedom Charter wished. We hope Klaaste's message is given momentum year after year.
