The storm damage and the taxi protest experienced in Nagaka Modiri Molema district did not deter our province. From writing the exams, I want to appeal to our communities to give space to learners to write their exams, a As a province, we have a target to achieve and we want to give learners a fair chance to make us proud,” he said.
