SDM Council Chief Whip visits teenage pregnancy riddled Dithamaga Secondary School

MOUTSE – Following the recent announcement of the decision by Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) Executive Mayor, Stanley Ramaila, to adopt two schools marred by the scourge of teenage pregnancy in Moutse, Dithamaga and Tlhako secondary schools, SDM Council Chief Whip, Tseke Lepota visited Dithamaga Secondary School.

The Chief Whip’s office invited Rural2Rural to attract partners in pursuit of the mission to impart useful information, guidance and motivation for the learners to prepare them for a brighter future.

Chief Whip Lepota said seeing a generation of young people who were inspired to study and lead the society was very encouraging.

Chief Whip said: “But I am hopeful that my presence here will add value to your lives and academic progression. The development of Sekhukhune to become one of the most respected communities in the country depends on its acknowledgement of the importance of education to better the lives of people. Our district is one of the richest with many acknowledgeable young people who are leading the country as politicians, engineers, lawyers and other professions the people of the country continue to benefit from.”

Lepota cautioned the learners that those young people did not bow to peer pressure and avoided nice times as they stuck to their books, to get through in life.

“The abuse of alcohol and drugs has robbed us talent and some of our young people who had potential are unable to look at their teachers and former classmates today. They are embarrassed. Passing matric is an important bridge in your lives. Today, unlike in the past, access to education is not bias as it is free,” advised Lepota.
