Policy to Promote Protection of Languages

Sithandiwe Velaphi / The New Age
Xoliswa Tom, MEC for sport, recreation, arts and culture, says the Eastern Cape language policy launched last week at Grahamstown’s Settlers Monument will promote adherence to constitutional provisions and requirements regarding language. The Eastern Cape’s provincial language policy identifies isiXhosa, Afrikaans, English and Sesotho as the official languages of the province. The policy makes provision for the development of Khoisan and sign languages.
