Five learners from the Northern Cape will represent the province in the national debate on road safety, taking place in October.

These learners, Boikanyo Bacana, Luthando Pieta, Boingotlo Moremi, Mihle Tyindyi and Cornice Olyn from across the five districts in the Northern Cape, are ready for the national debate that will be held in Rustenburg.

They were chosen as the best out of 50 speakers during the provincial rounds which took place in Upington on Saturday, 26 August.

The annual road safety debates are aimed to empo­wer learners and their peers to become safer road users and ambassadors in their communities and to make informed decisions on the road.

Comprising of urban and rural categories, the debates commenced in the five districts. The elimination of debaters led to learners of various schools forming teams to represent their districts in the provincial leg of the debates.

The topic in the urban category was “Using your mobile phone while driving with or without a hand free device is not safe”, while the topic in the rural category was “South Africa is on course to achieve the sustainable development goal to reduce road crashes by 50% by 2020.”
