Julius Malema calls on education reforms

When one speaks of something new that needs to be adopted, it can either be for the good of the society or for the worst. What cannot be far from the truth is that time will tell if the society will benefit in the long run. The commander in chief of the EFF now seems to be seeing areas which need amendment in our education system.

Areas which are being put into consideration range from primary education up to tertiary education. That means Angie Motshekga may end up looking at some of the proposals only if the legislators view the idea as feasible.

According to the EFF leader, Julius Malema, a report which was published by the SAfm News on the 26th of June 2022 claimed that he has called for free and decolonised education in the country. In 2015, universities across the country saw mass demonstrations over the access to education in public institutions. Learners at that time were demanding for changes within the education system.

Malema lamented the lack of access to education at the party's rally in Kliptown, Soweto, in Johannanesburg, commemorating the adoption of the Freedom Charter in 1955.

This lack of access in education has left some communities deprived of the right to education and this therefore condemns them to substandard lifestyles. Some of the youth who grow up in such communities often turn to drugs and crime as they will be finding it hard to come to terms with adulthood.

What remains to be known is whether if the current leadership will ever move an inch in addressing the demands of Malema and those who share the same view as him. Members of the public have mixed reactions regarding this issue.
