Sometimes in life, if you need something to be done you just have to do it yourself. Parents of the children at Jumba Senior Secondary School in Mthatha recently did this after taking the initiative to build additional classrooms at the school for their kids.
Heading online, a man with the Twitter handle, @ghettostyler recently shared a picture of builders working on the classrooms. In the caption, he explained that the parents of the children who would be using the classrooms decided to build it for them.
"PARENTS from Jumba Senior Secondary School in Mthatha have taken a decision to build two classrooms, to assist their children with their learning, while they wait for the Eastern Cape Department of Education to assist them.
"The school governing body (SGB) treasurer, Nobomi Sifundo, confirmed that they were using donations from the parents to build these classrooms. This school is one of the schools that were damaged by a tornado last year."
Soon locals were sharing their thoughts:
"South Africans are not politically literate, if those parents voted right they wouldn't have to waste their money and time. There are people getting paid monthly to do that job."
"ANC is doing exactly what the past regime was doing, most of the schools that the gov claims to be gov schools were built by parents, I went to primary & high school which my parents contributed for them be built, it's sad to see this in 2021."

Taking to her LinkedIn page, Iheoma said that she took it upon herself to raise awareness and source for funds to renovate classrooms in disuse.
She revealed that with the help of the project, students who could not continue their education because they lacked conducive environments to learn returned to their classes.
