As thousands of pupils across the country begin to sit and write their final examinations, traditional leaders have also taken some time out to say ALL THE BEST.
The Mpumalanga chairman of the house of traditional leaders, Inkhosi Sandile Ngomane, is wishing all learners who will be writing the exams this year well.
The date of 23 October 2017 has been announced as the date of the start of the final examinations.
Inkhosi says he extends well wishes especially to the Grade 12s as these exams will prepare them for their studies at tertiary level and for the future.
He said: “Traditions and cultural practices are a legacy that should be embedded to oneself as they always keep us in line with our moral values.
“We hope that the learners will practice their cultures and traditions even when they pursue their academic studies at tertiary institutions,” he said.
He also urged learners to contribute in their various communities once they have finished their studies and gained knowledge.
“Rural communities are the hardest hit by the triple effects of poverty, inequality and unemployment,” he said.
“We pin our hopes on the learners that they will plough back their acquired knowledge to our rural communities at the end of their studies to uplift our standard of living and be role models,” said Inkhosi.
