Mayor calls for university for Ekurhuleni

CLR Mzwandile Masina, executive mayor of Ekurhuleni.

THE executive mayor Clr Mzwandile Masina has called on business to support the call for the establishment of a university in the City of Ekurhuleni.

In his comments at the recent manufacturing indaba, he placed emphasis on the need for skills development in order to drive the manufacturing industry.

“The City of Ekurhuleni is the only metro in the world that doesn’t have a university. Given the industrial nature of the Ekurhuleni economy, it’s not a sustainable status quo. We need engineers, innovators and specialists in the field of aviation, logistics and manufacturing,” he said.

“A university is no longer a matter to converse on – we must start the journey towards building the institution,” Masina said, addressing the indaba.

“As the region of Ekurhuleni, we will make submissions at the upcoming ANC national policy conference for the university establishment to become part of resolutions in the policy conference, as it requires buy-in from the National Department of Higher Education and other major stakeholders across the country,” Masina added.
