Cape Town – The select committees on education and recreation and social services were on Monday expected to conduct a joint oversight visit in Limpopo to assess service delivery in the area, Parliament said on Sunday.

Parliamentary communications service's Malatswa Molepo said the select committee on education and recreation was expected to focus primarily on Vuwani, where several schools were torched during a demarcation dispute recently.

“It will also seek to assess progress in the implementation of catch-up plans for schools that were burned and vandalised earlier this year, the state of readiness for year-end examinations, and in loco visits to various identified schools,” said Molepo.  

The select committee on social services was expected to assess the provision of quality healthcare through the roll-out of the National Health Insurance pilot project, the provision of quality water and housing, as well as visiting border management of the Beitbridge Port of Entry, said Molepo.

The committees were expected to start their visit at the Beitbridge border post.
