[Ms S R TSEBE (ANC): Speaker, let me take this opportunity to thank the ruling party, ANC, and to congratulate the Department of Communications on launching the Ikamva National e-Skills Institute on 21 February 2014 in Durban.]
The institute is well positioned to play the much needed national catalytic and supporting role at local, provincial, national and international levels to develop the e-skills required to live and function in a broadband- empowered society.
Functionally the institute will be virtually located in co-labs, in Thusong Service Centres, Universal Service and Access Agency of South Africa centres and other community centres to enable them to reach a wide stakeholder spectrum. The institute aims to reach 10 million users, especially in rural communities, within the next five years. Ke a leboga. [Thank you.]
