35 learners benefit from 1893 MRM’s education programme

A total of 35 learners in Matabeleland have to date benefitted from the 1893 Mthwakazi Human Rights Restoration Movement (1893 MRM)’s Ordinary Level education crash programme, the organisation has said.

The 1893 MRM is an organisation fighting for the rights of the people of Matabeleland.

In a statement, Thembani Dube, the 1893 MRM executive director, said the programme dubbed Inqobo Regiment Education O’ Level crash programme in Mathematics and English which began last year is led by their director of education, Tshela Zwelithini Sibanda, an established and experienced teacher.

“Since the inception of the Inqobo Regiment O’ Level Education crash programme in June 2021 to November 2022, 35 students have benefitted from this programme,” said Dube.

“The Movement is intent on running this programme next year, resources permitting.”

Dube said the right to education is very important.

“As an empowerment right, education is the primary vehicle by which economically and socially marginalized adults and children can lift themselves out of poverty and obtain the means to participate fully in their communities,” said Dube,

“This is crucial, especially in Matabeleland where we observe that this right to our children is violated daily in the education sector. If the human right to education of our children continues to be violated without intervention, then our children’s doors to other rights of life are being perennially shut. The movement therefore believes in the importance of tackling this issue head-on and making some contribution to arrest the situation.”

The June 2021 to November 2021 Inqobo Regiment Education O’ Level programme in Mathematics and English, Dube said, benefited 19 students in Bulawayo.

“This was a great success and an attendance award ceremony was arranged and was attended by both students, parents and the Mbuyazwe Regiment Chapter leadership of the Movement,” he said.

“Our 2022 Inqobo Regiment O’ Level Education programme commenced in July and ended in November. The programme focused on three subjects. These are Mathematics, English and Geography led by our three specialist teachers in these subjects.” 

He explained: “Mr Elson Ndlovu led the Mathematics crash programme. Mr Tshela Zwelithini Sibanda led the English crash programme and Mr Thembelani Dube led the Geography crash programme. The Movement is pleased to announce that 16 students benefited from this programme this year and we wish them well in the examinations they have written this year.”
