Tshwane - President Cyril Ramaphosa has urged girls, who are sitting for the matric exams this year - to remain focused and attain their goals as he did.
Ramaphosa made the plea to 70 girls who joined him as part of the Take a Girl Child to Work campaign which was launched with success 16-years ago, in 2003.
The Grade 8 to 12 girls came from different schools in Gauteng. Minutes after his arrival at the Union Building in Pretoria on Thursday, he was immediately faced with a barrage of questions, with some wanting to know what made him to become the president of South Africa.
Others want him to divulge his plans to end poverty while others wanted him to immediately fight the scourge of drugs especially nyaope.
Another pupil, expressed her disappointment in Ramaphosa’s “failure” to appoint former Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi as Minister Basic Education.
