South Africa's Tertiary Students Get Almost R1 Billion Lifeline

The Minister of Higher Education Naledi Pandor has released the funds for 50,000 students who are govt-funded, and whose historical debt has stopped them from continuing their studies. Students have been demanding free education for those who were disadvantaged due to lack of funds, through movements like #FeesMustFall.
