Things are really getting tough in South Africa. The poor people are the ones who always have to bear the brunt while the politicians at the top can do as they they please and no one will question them. These people always misuse gorvenment money that is supposed to help the poor but nothing is being done about it.
Most of the youth especially the blacks are depended on basaries to be able to further their studies as most of them are from disadvantaged families. The Free State Provincial gorvenment has now decided that they will no longer be offering bursaries to student for the 2022 academic year and they say that it is because of the pressure that is being experienced by the fiscus.
We also have National Financial Aid Scheem (Nasfas) which is now demanding a 75% pass of the overall modules. This will be a mountain to climb for some leaners. Their career will fall just as they start. We need to have the government that knows the importance of investing in the youth and education. They are the ones who always says that education is the key to success but they make it difficult for that education to be accessed.
We know that the province also used to offer bursaries for the top 100 matriculants but they will not be doing that this time around. This is not what people have been expecting. Now that the elections are done, this is the thanks that people get from the ANC. They should have communicated all this information just before the elections and they would have seen flames. People are now tired about the incapable ANC that only knows how to talk but with no action. All this has to come to an end. If the ANC does not tread carefully come 2024, they will be looking from the sidelines because South Africans have shown that they are not afraid of change whatsoever.
