MBABANE- The children who were deprived of their right to education, health and registration are now excelling in their studies.

One of them sees himself standing on a pulpit sharing the Word of God with congregants in the future. His vision is known to his schoolmates and teachers of Elshadai Primary School where he is attending with his siblings. Elshadai is situated at Ekufikeni between Mnyokane and KaNcesi in the Hhohho Region. The school was visited last Friday with intent to ascertain how the children were coping with school life.


Upon arrival at the school, a cook ushered this reporter to the Head teacher Lindiwe Maziya’s officer, where she (Maziya) was found busy with her daily duties. When asked about the situation since the children were admitted to the school, Maziya started by saying: “They are very good in class.” She stated that the children’s mother *Siphiwe was a regular visitor at the school since her children were admitted in February this year. “The children arrive at school an hour earlier. They are always neat. In case they are not at school, Siphiwe would come to report even before one can notice,” Maziya said.

However, the head teacher said she  believed that their class teacher knew the children better than her. She appreciated the effort made by Deputy Prime Minister Themba Masuku and other stakeholders in ensuring that the children enjoyed their fundamental rights.  The children’s class teacher, Nontobeko Sibandze, was called to the office. She stated that according to her assessment, the elder child was brilliant in class. Sibandze stated that *Sidumo never had difficulties in Mathematics, SiSwati and Religious Studies. “He has improved almost in all the other subjects. He is also good in forming an opinion and making analysis after reading a story,” said the class teacher. She added that during career guidance lessons, Sidumo was not ashamed to state that he wanted to be a pastor and lead a church.
