WC opposition debates Helen Zille’s SOPA
On Tuesday, outgoing Western Cape Premier Helen Zille in her address highlighted several strides in education.
On Tuesday, parties debated Zille's State of the Province Address (Sopa) which was delivered last week.
The debate on Zille’s Sopa was dominated by the more than 2,000 pupils who are still without a school.
This comes days after Zille, in her address, highlighted several strides in education.
ANC acting provincial chairperson Khaya Magaxa says learners sitting idly at home could very soon join gangs.
“If those children are not in schools, it means that they are subjected to join crime.”
The African Christian Democratic Party provincial leader Ferlon Christians says the Provincial Schools Education Amendment Bill, which allows for the sale of liquor at schools under strict conditions, needs to be scrapped.
Zille will reply on Thursday.
