Premier David Mabuza officially unveiled a statue of Pixley Ka Isaka Seme at the Dr Pixley Ka Isaka Seme local municipality in Daggakraal, Volkrust, on Saturday.

Seme, one of the founders of the ANC, became its president from 1930 to 1936.

Mabuza said today’s youth did not have a choice but to study extensively if they wanted to make positive contributions in the future.

He said the government was doing everything in its power to assist the youth to get education.

“Dr Pixley Ka Seme was an educationist who studied abroad in an effort to uplift his people. He never divorced himself from his people, regardless of his education,” Mabuza said.

It is important to honour our struggle icons, Mabuza said.

The premier said Daggakraal was still underdeveloped and that much needed to be done to change the lives of the local people for the better.

“The road to freedom was very long. However, since 1994 a lot has been done, but we should all agree that a lot still needs to be done.

“This statue therefore should remind us that the struggle to bring basic services to our people still continues,” said Mabuza.
