Gaut­eng Ed­u­ca­tion MEC Panyaza Le­sufi has done it again. On Fri­day, he an­nounced that Honey­well, a com­pany that man­u­fac­tures ma­jor parts for aero­planes, such as au­topi­lot com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tems and brakes, has agreed to train 400 Grade 5 town­ship pupils and pre­pare them for the avi­a­tion world. As the late Brenda Fassie would say, higher and higher! We know that Gau­train strives to pro­vide an ex­cep­tional, re­li­able and com­fort­able ex­pe­ri­ence, but they take them­selves way too se­ri­ously. Their re­fusal to al­low a per­son dressed in Nde­bele re­galia to board a train be­cause he was dressed “in­ap­pro­pri­ately” was a shock­ing in­dict­ment of their per­cep­tion of cul­ture and de­cency.
