Le gouvernement ne respecte pas sa promesse,” says Rajah Mahadeo. “Il est aberrant de dire que les élèves qui ne vont pas à l’école sont irresponsables,” he added.

Nous ne sommes pas là pour revendiquer un privilège mais un droit. Le gouvernement n’a pas le droit d’obliger les parents à payer les frais d’examens. Ce gouvernement est dans l’illégalité, “said Karrimbaccus Mansoor, vice president of UPSEE. “C’était une promesse électorale de payer les frais d’examens. Le Premier ministre doit assumer ses responsabilités. L’engagement pris doit être respecté,” say the side of the UPSEE.

Note that the Union of Private Secondary Education Employees (UPSEE) is present for the march. More to follow..
