14 Nov I was not consulted about establishment of Higher Commission : Blade Nzimande

Former Higher Education Minister, Blade Nzimande, says he is still of the view that all poor and working class students should be provided with free education at tertiary level. His comments come after President Jacob Zuma released the Fees Commission Report yesterday. It recommends that students be funded through a cost-sharing model of government guaranteed loans from commercial banks. The report also recommends that students studying at TVET Colleges receive fully subsidised free education in the form of grants. Students from various universities have voiced their opposition to the recommendations. Sakina Kamwendo spoke to Former Higher Education Minister, Blade Nzimande
