  1. Let’s just call this Ministry, the Ministry Without Portfolio so that we are not cheating each other. They have no real work.

  2. Please give hope and guidance to pupils you are sending home during the Covid-19 epidemic period, and not just fear and hopelessness. Encouraging them to remain physically fit during this period will do them good than just sending them home with zero information.
