    They must be open and available to those who want to educate themselves.

    Sorry I’m not joining you all tomorrow but I’ll be there in spirit. It is very important that this much needed institution is reopen for the hundreds of children, student and people of the inner city.

    This is unacceptable and a disgrace. Particularly given that the funds available for the maintenance and running of the library have been stolen !! Shameful. Fulfil your duties now.
