Motshekga must go, says ANCYL
The ANC Youth League has now joined the chorus calling for Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga to resign.
JOHANNESBURG - The ANC Youth League has now joined the chorus calling for Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga to resign as the Limpopo textbook saga lingers on.
Pupils there have spent the first half of the year without learning material.
The minister has refused to take blame saying there were many factors contributing to the saga.
The Education Department has also failed to meet a high court deadline to provide the learning material.
The youth leagues Magdalene Moonsamy says Motshekga should do the noble thing.
"We cannot allow a situation where education becomes compromised whether it is through textbooks or teaching."
It has also been reported the ANC NEC believes Motshekga has failed to carry out her responsibilities as education minister.
NEC members met behind closed doors on Saturday. They said the party cannot afford not to deliver on education as it is one of government's priorities.
Meanwhile, Deputy Minister in the Presidency Obed Bapela says South Africa is in need of leaders with sufficient morals to admit their wrongs.
He has told delegates at the Moral Regeneration Movement in Boksburg that public officials who know they have erred, should admit their mistakes and vacate office.
The meeting marks the end of moral regeneration month.
