Limpopo matric candidates ready

2012-10-18 15:31

Johannesburg - Grade 12 pupils in Limpopo were not affected by the textbook saga and were ready for their final exams, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga said on Thursday.

"Only Grades 1, 2, 3 and 10 were affected by lack of learning materials. Grade 12 pupils were not affected and are ready," she told reporters in Pretoria.

A total of 78 182 full-time and 14 584 part-time candidates in Limpopo would sit for the exams due to commence next week Monday.

The province has been marred by non-delivery of textbooks this year, with the department missing numerous delivery deadlines.

Section27, a non-governmental organisation, took the department to court to force it deliver the books to Limpopo schools.

    And if they fail here they can choose a life of crime, go to jail and get a free education there.

    "ME? Of course I am sure." or "ME? Of course I can read." or "ME? Of course I can write too." or "ME? Of course I am of the evolved species." Somebody should really change that file photo.

    And this said by miss bumble bee who comes from the parliament of pathological liars. Just give them the darn pass and get it over. The prisoners will receive a better education than the youth. I have said it many times, crime does pay and now it comes with an education.

    "Only Grades 1, 2, 3 and 10 were affected by lack of learning materials WTF Motshega do you deserve some sort of praise for that? Maybe the showerman will praise you for that but this is an epic fail having 1000's of pupils that lost an entire year. She must be fired the buck stops with her!

      Don't you love how the word "only" was used there? Umm Angie, if you had done your job (for which you are WELL paid), it wouldn't have happened at all!!

    The only thing they will be ready for with that level of education is a life of servitude...... I really do feel sorry for them as everyone wants a good life but it starts with a good education..!

    There is a song by Brenda saying two policemen were arguing about a blackman,s child one saying let him go and the other one saying kill him before he grow . The same thing happening in Limpopo . Anc is arguing among itself about our children saying , give them education and some members saying no they will see our corruption .
