South Africa: Deputy Minister General Bheki Cele revisits Phokwane Local Municipality
During the Imbizo Focus Week in April this year, the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) General Bheki Cele promised the community of Phokwane Local Municipality that he will come back to check on the progress made after the visit. The Deputy Minister did indeed keep his promise when he visited the municipality again on 13 December 2016. He, together with the Mayor of Phokwane Local Municipality, Councilor Sentse Kaalmaan visited VH1 Farm in Jan Kempdorp, VH20 farm in Ganspan and the Vaalharts Revitalisation Project, also in Ganspan. When he visited the VH1 farm in April, the farmers pleaded with him to assist with water reticulation for livestock and repairs of the windmill. Water reticulation and windmill repairs are indeed in progress. “The cattle are no longer bony like the first time I saw them,” commented the Deputy Minister on the progress made since his last visit. Seedlings, fruit trees and starter packs, which consist of a rake, spade, watering can, compost and seeds, were donated to the farmers.

South Africa: Basic Education Department hosts Mathematics Education Indaba in Pretoria
A three-day Mathematics Education Indaba is currently underway at the Department of Education in Pretoria where the Minister, Angie Motshekga is hosting experts and stakeholders. The purpose of the Indaba is to place the teaching and learning of Mathematics within the public schooling system boldly on the radar. There is also a need to define the set of values for the teaching and learning of Mathematics in the South African context. Improvements in the public schooling system especially in Mathematics and Science are vital to South Africa’s future socio-economic prospects: for the learners as well as the development of the country as a whole. We owe it to the current generation and posterity to offer cutting-edge public schooling that has vastly improved learner outcomes in gateway subjects. Ours is a historical mission to bring about fundamental change in the lives of our people. Basic Education is often considered as a catalyst for such fundamental change.
