Educational support for military veterans, dependents
About 9 000 military veterans and their dependents will this year be furthering their education - thanks to bursaries from the Department of Military Veterans (DMV).
Of the 9 000 beneficiaries, there are 5 000 continuing students while the rest, 4 000 are new beneficiaries.
The department has to date provided support to approximately 5 800 education beneficiaries, to the tune of R142 million against the initial budget of R26.4 million in both basic and tertiary education.
Take advantage of business opportunities
Transport Minister Dipuo Peters has encouraged South Africans to register their companies in different databases within all spheres of government in order to take advantage of the many business opportunities.
“We made a commitment of procuring 75 percent of government goods and services from South African producers,” Minister Peters said recently.
