Mr Sibusiso Malaza (MEC of the Mpumalanga Department of Education) takes a tour of the classes being renovated. Here are Ms Sharon Marais (Ermelo Circuit Manager), Mr JZ Dlamini (principal: Lindile Secondary School), Mr Malaza, Mr Jasper Zwane (Communications Manager) and Mr Nopta Masimula (engineer).

Member of the Executive Council (MEC) of the Department of Education (DoE) in Mpumalanga, Mr Sibusiso Malaza, visited Lindile Secondary School on Monday, 7 May to check on the progress of renovations at the school.

Lindile Secondary School has had a challenging year, with teachers halting classes due to dilapidated infrastructures and a sewer system continuously spilling over onto the school premises.

This saw the community come together to hold a march in solidarity with the school and a memerandum was handed over to the DoE.
