City do­nates school uni­forms

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Muzi Zin­c­ume

THE uMh­lathuze Mu­nic­i­pal­ity boosted the self-es­teem of more than 300 pupils from mainly pri­mary schools in the city by pro­vid­ing them with brand new school uni­forms.

The ben­e­fi­cia­ries were iden­ti­fied by their re­spec­tive school prin­ci­pals, work­ing to­gether with ward coun­cil­lors.

Speak­ing at the han­dover in the Em­pan­geni Civic Cen­tre, Mayor Mduduzi Mh­longo praised the pri­vate sec­tor for their con­tri­bu­tion to­wards chang­ing the lives of needy learn­ers.

Mh­longo said the new uni­forms will bring dig­nity to the learn­ers and en­sure they can fo­cus on their stud­ies in­stead of think­ing of their challenging cir­cum­stances.

‘We are grate­ful that the pri­vate sec­tor, es­pe­cially those do­ing busi­ness with the mu­nic­i­pal­ity, are giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity,’ said Mh­longo.
