Asbestos free classrooms erected at Mafefe


Five asbestos-free classrooms were officially handed by the national Department of Environmental affairs. The classes were handed at Sealane Primary School in Mafefe on Friday. The department also handed an eight kilometre asbestos free road in the village.
Speaking at the event, Minister Edna Molewa said the government prioritizes to address the challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality.
“In Sekhukhune we have constructed 2.5km asbestos free streets in Penge at the cost of R5 million. The project here in Mafefe has been to the value of R43 million and has resulted in the employment of 68 local community members, 34 of which are women.
She said the roads were replaced because they run next to crèches and schools and will now limit the exposure of children to asbestos fibres in the air.
Molewa says they’re trying to minimise the effects of asbestosis in the area.
“We are still very far. We are fighting. Even as we have done this road today the fact that there are still people who are inhaling is very worrying.”

Molewa put an icing on the cake by handing school shoes to the learners at the school.
