You will recall that in October 2018, the President launched South Africa’s very first passenger train manufacturing plant in Nigel. This state of the art facility is positioning South Africa as a manufacturer of new generation passenger trains. To date, Deputy Speaker, this facility has already produced new trains locally.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
