natu thumb medium80 91ANA reports that the National Teachers’ Union (Natu) on Thursday called on government to fast-track free tertiary education because “the country is burning”.  

The union welcomed the commitment by government to fund a zero percent fee increase for NSFAS students and the children of public servants whose parents earn below R600,000 per annum.  Natu deputy president and spokesman Allen Thompson advised that the union had written to Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande requesting an urgent meeting.  He said they were also waiting for a meeting date from the commission investigating the feasibility of free education as they want to present its model for free education to the commission.  Thompson went on to condemn the burning of university property during no fee protests.
