MUTALE - Dignitaries from different provinces attended the official opening of the Limpopo Provincial Traffic College in Mutale on Friday.
According to a spokesperson, the college will continue to play a pivotal role that will enable the authorities to maintain and sustain road safety in Limpopo Province, South Africa and the rest of Africa.
Students from several other provinces have already enrolled for several traffic courses at the college.
The spokesperson said the college is undergoing constant upgrading and administrative transformation to enable it to eventually meet the required standard. It is fully equipped to cater for the needs of students, he said.
Since the college was established in 1997, thousands of students received certificates and diplomas as traffic officers, examiners for driving licences, examiners of vehicles, dangerous goods law enforcers, pro-laser speed measuring operators, dragger breath/alcohol analyser operators, supervisory trainers, and traffic wardens. The MEC for Transport in Limpopo, Dr Tshenuwani Farisani, said that corruption in the public service is a challenge that all people, including members of the public, should fight with determination. "When we deploy our traffic officers, we will be sure that we have men and women of integrity, who are confident and determined to do their work. We are committed to fighting corruption and this is demonstrated by our determination and ability to deal with elements of our society who want to rob taxpayers of scarce resources," said Farisani.
