JOHANNESBURG – President Cyril Ramaphosa has raised concerns with the high number of children in Hanover Park who are not in school.

Ramaphosa aired this grievance following a walkabout in the community yesterday before officially launching the police's anti-gang unit.

He interacted with children in the area who were not in school.

Ramaphosa has told parents that it's their responsibility to ensure children get educated.

“You must not compromise on the future of your children because education as Madiba said is the only weapon we have to get out of poverty and gangsterism.”
