The MEC for Education in KwaZulu-Natal, Mr Kwazi Mshengu attended the 2019 Parliament For People With Disability held at Bhongweni Youth Centre, Ward 05 in Greater Kokstad Local Municipality, under the theme:
“Together Building South Africa Inclusive of Disability Rights”.
The MEC responded to many questions raised and progress on implementation of 2018 Resolutions.
As KZN Education the Department has recently handed-over 8 buses which will be distributed throughout the Province to special needs education schools. Sign Language has already been included onto the Curriculum.
We are also going to build a school that supports Autism at the beginning of next year. Disabled learners must also be given resources they deserve. We don't want our learners to be treated as charity cases but must be given equal opportunities", said the MEC
