Chester Missing slams President Cyril Ramaphosa’s tablet drive

Chester Missing

Puppet Chester Missing has fired shots against President Cyril Ramaphosa’s alleged plans to roll out thousands of tablets to pupils‚ suggesting that more basic resources were needed in schools and should be given priority.

According to City Press the president will use his State of the Nation Address next month to announce the rollout of tablets for all pupils in the country’s 23‚700 primary and secondary schools.

Other plans include the introduction of robotics and coding in grades one to three and the digitalisation of school curriculums.

The reports have sparked massive debate on social media with even former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela stressing caution.

But one of the cheekiest responses came from the puppet‚ who took to Twitter to ask if the tablets would help eradicate broken and pit toilets in rural schools.

Cartoonist Carlos Amato weighed in on the debate with a comic about the issue‚ while others expressed their thoughts on the debate.
