South Africa has a free tertiary education funded by National Student Financial Aid Scheme, NSFAS. Former president Jacob Zuma declared tertiary free before he eas ousted and replaced by the current president Cyril Ramaphosa.
COSAS approached the Johannesburg Security Exchange demanding 10 billion from its listed companies to fund free education. Maybe they did not get the memo.
South Africa has seen a lot of violent protests that usually resulted with a lot of destruction to property and widespread looting. This type of acts of criminality scare the very investors need to create jobs for students once they graduate.
Our economy is ailing and we need cool heads to come together and try to come up with viable ideas that will help stimulate growth.
