On 09 August 2019 MEC for EDTEA Ms Nomsa Dube-Ncube attended the Provincial Women’s Day Celebration in Newcastle, Osizweni Sportsground . Speaking ahead MEC Dube-Ncube heaped praise at the role of women.
"We converge here on the day of Women’s Day celebrations as the sixth administration with a very important mandate from our people. We wish to pay tribute to South African women for their sterling role on liberating this country from the apartheid shackles. "Today we wish to pay tribute the very same Ma Sisulu who together with other luminaries like Lillian Ngoyi, Bertha Gxowa, Rahima Moosa, Florence Mkhize, Ruth Mompati, Sophia De-Bruyn, Helen Joseph and many other 20 000 plus women led the march to the Union Buildings to protest draconian pass laws. Their gallant efforts were never in vain. Happy Women’s Day."
