Premier Zille Hands over Bicycles to Learners

19 June 2012

On Wednesday, 20 June, Premier Helen Zille handed over bicycles to learners at Bontebok Primary School in Swellendam. The bicycles form part of the Shova Kalula programme, a joint initiative between the Bicycle Empowerment Network (BEN) and the national and provincial departments of transport to provide bicycles to citizens and communities who need them most. In addition to bicycles, the learners also received helmets, luminous safety vests for night-time cycling and basic cycling safety training. Premier Zille, accompanied by ministers, officials and representatives of BEN, has been cycling in stages from Plettenberg Bay and will be arriving in Khayelitsha on Thursday, 21 June.
