PIETERMARITZBURG’s candidate attorney Andrew Gwacela explained that the novel Covid-19 would have dire consequences, if the public doesn’t offer assistance to one and other during the pandemic.Gwacele took to social media to offer history lessons to any Grade 12 pupil who would like to study during the lockdown.Working for Kooben Chetty & Associates, Gwacela said because of the number of people who have been inconvenienced severely by the outbreak, he has had an impulse to try and assist matric pupils with the knowledge he has.“I used to enjoy history as a subject while in high school. Although I was aiming for an A, I managed to get a score of 76% for my final matric marks. I have always loved the subject and whilst at university (UKZN),” said Gwacela.He added that he was also part of the tutoring project which was aimed at assisting high school pupils during weekends with their studies where he was also tutoring history. The attorney who’s originally from Port Shepstone, but currently living in PMB, said he believes that tutoring pupils would be an act of kindness and a way of giving back to the community. He also highlighted that more help is needed to assist matriculants in this period.“Not only with history, but various other subjects as well. As much as we may not cover everything within the syllabus, but the little information we provide will help tremendously,” said Gwacela.In speaking of whether he thinks the country will come out strong from the pandemic, Gwacela said “Yes, only if we all adhere to the government’s measures that have been put in place to try and combat the spread of Covid-19.“I’m hopeful that we will, to a larger extent, manage the situation. This is a collective duty, requiring each an everyone of us to play a critical role. If we act or work together with an aim of curbing more infections, we will definitely achieve more,” said Gwacela.
