A lack of information and exposure to scarce skills fields is one of the major reasons young people in disadvantaged areas are not entering these careers.
The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in KwaZulu-Natal says they are expecting a high voter turn-out in both the eThekwini and Nkandla municipality by-elections underway in the province.
eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede has called on all residents with outstanding electricity and water bills to settle them to enable the city to recover the R9.2 billion it is owed.
The majority of African National Congress branches in the eThekwini region have told party President Cyril Ramaphosa and other ANC National Working Committee members that they want the provincial elective conference to go ahead.
The eThekwini Municipality has partnered with the UNITAR to provide training for the Metro Police Officers on High Visibility Enforcement to improve road safety in the city ahead of the upcoming Easter and School holidays.
