The schools to be visited include, Thubalethu, Nyiba, Eyabantu, Sakhululeka, Kuyasa, Richard Varha and Archie Velile High Schools.
The campaign is scheduled for the 10 to 11 May 2018 and the first visit will take place in Fort Beaufort followed by Dimbaza on the following day. All the visits will commence at 08h00 morning 0n both days.
