Mayor Sphesihle Zulu Wishes the Matric Class of 2017 Well

We have once again reached that time of the year when our matriculants will sit for their final matric examination. It has been a long educational journey that has brought you this far and through long term commitment and discipline you will soon reap the rewards.

Our beloved late former president Nelson Mandela once declared that, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Going forward opportunities will be endless and only your dreams of a better future will place you at the door steps of academic and visionary excellence.

Having said that, the government of the day through its Strategic Policy Document “National Development Plan” there are a number of areas of economic opportunities like Ocean Economy/ Operation Phakisa which require specialised scarce skills and I would like to challenge the youth of Mandeni to explore these areas of opportunities as Mandeni Municipality is one of the Coastal Municipalities in the Province and shall provide such opportunities.

We urge all parents, guardians and community members to be the pillar of support for our matriculants and give them the necessary structure to prepare for these momentous exams.

Mandeni Municipality fully supports you.

Good luck!

Cllr SB. Zulu

The Mayor of Mandeni Municipality
