“In line with President Ramaphosa’s vision to equip learners with mobile learning tools such as tablets in all public schools, I believe that delivering internet connectivity to schools will substantially improve our country schooling system. Internet connectivity is essential if we want our children to succeed in education, in work and in life - education with internet connectivity is possibly the single most important factor in overcoming poverty, unemployment and inequality.” Said Pinky Kekana, Communications Deputy Minister.
