Province aims to push for policy on universities

If the Eastern Cape ANC has its way, the governing party should come out of its national elective conference with a clear programme to end the “institutional autonomy” that is enjoyed by universities in South Africa, which frustrates the attainment of free education.


This was said by the ANC’s provincial secretary Lulama Ngcukayitobi prior to a two-day provincial general council (PGC) today and tomorrow, which will refine policy positions ahead of the national conference at Nasrec in Johannesburg.

Ngcukayitobi said the Eastern Cape would reject the Heher Commission’s recommendation that NSFAS be replaced with the Income Contingent Loan System, which would be financed by the banks.
