Chair, there are two responses. The first one relates to Mr Mpontshane's issue around teachers who have pensions due. We have agreed with the Minister of Finance that if you can give us specific cases, we will deal with them. Indeed, we agree with you that it is extremely cruel to have people serve the state but when they have to receive their pensions they experience difficulties. So, we are not aware of those cases. Please give us specific references and we will attend to them.
The second issue is related to sanitation problems that were exposed last week in the newspapers. We agree that it is totally unacceptable.
In our last Council of Education Ministers, CEM, meeting last week, we gave all provinces - it was not only Gauteng - through our monitoring, full data on all the toilets that are nonfunctional and which are dirty in all the provinces.
We agreed with the MECs that they should ensure that these matters are attended to. There is an ongoing maintenance plan around sanitation and toilets. So, it is being attended to and we hope that it is happening in all provinces. It was exposed with reference to Gauteng but it is a national problem that we are attending to. Thank you very much, Chair.
