Eastern Cape iSchool Press Team visits Parliament:

On Friday 11 May, two learners from the Kuyasa Youth Press team visited Parliament. The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform invited Simamkele Danby, Masimbonge Viti and their teacher Ms. Nolubalali Dinge from Kuyasa Combined School in the Eastern Cape to attend the budget proceedings. In true press team style, they also interviewed Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane. Not only was this Simamkele and Masimbonge’s first visit to Cape Town, but also their first flight on an airplane. Great excitement! The Youth Press Team is part of the iSchoolAfrica Rural Development programme, funded by the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform and Core Group.
