ZIPHOZETHU Primary School, in Lindelani, Ward 5, received an Easter present on the last day of the first term when the ANC from the same constituency donated desks to the school and uniforms for children in need.

Led by the branch’s chairperson, Fikani Mbambo, the executive committee handed over 44 desks and six uniforms to the school, received by three boys and three girls.

Mbambo said: “Children should be given a chance to become the best that they can be.” He said to avoid children becoming child labourers it is imperative for them to be educated.

“Our branch executive committee saw the need to support our children and ensure that their right to free education is protected,” he said.

Principal N.J. Khuzwayo thanked the donors for considering those less fortunate.

“We as a school thank our donors for what they have done because these desks are much needed because we have a shortage of them,” she said.

She added the ANC branch promised to assist the school annually.

She urged local business and the community to also lend helping hands to the school specifically when it comes to developing and looking after the school.

Khuzwayo said the school does not have certain facilities such as a library and this puts the pupils at a disadvantage because they have to make expensive trips to town to complete assignments
