​Premier David Makhura has urged the community of Braamfischerville to strongly act against the vandalism of public property in the area.

Makhura was speaking at the official opening of the newly constructed mega-category school, Nomzamo Madikizela Mandela Primary School in the area.
“Gauteng government builds beautiful properties such as schools and clinics, but when people are protesting they destroy those properties. Therefore, we must declare war against the destruction of public properties, and act against those who destroy our property, as a community,” said Makhura
Makhura further appealed to those who vandalise public property to stop their acts.

“We have placed high quality security measures in the school. Those who vandalise property and steal should know that their behaviour will no longer be tolerated,” added Makhura.
The construction of the school is another service delivery milestone by the Gauteng Provincial Government (GPG) in delivering state of the art education facilities that meet the modern-day demands of education curriculum delivery.
These high-tech, modern educational facilities will go a long way in ensuring that learners are equipped with the relevant skills that are needed to drive the GPG’s radical Transformation, Modernisation and Re-industrialisation strategy.

The facility is equipped with modern features which include, amongst others; energy saving solar geysers, Wi-Fi network, CCTV camera system, pre-cast palisade boundary security steel mesh above ceiling for theft proof, generator room, vinyl flooring in class rooms, ICT control room and two laboratories.

The Braamfischerville community members also signed the “I care We care” campaign pledge, which seeks to raise awareness about the consequences of the destruction of public property that has been sweeping through the province and the country, leaving many communities deprived of key social infrastructure.
