ANC Calls for a Return to the Negotiation Table in #Feesmustfall


Condemns Calls for Ungovernability and Anarchy



It is with grave concern that the African National Congress (ANC) has noted
the ongoing protests in the name of free education in various higher
education institutions across the country. While the ANC-led government
remains committed to ensuring equitable access to education and free
education for the poor, we condemn in the harshest possible terms the
continuing attempts to disrupt classes and what remains of the academic year
at various campuses. The arrests of several individuals, who are not
students, are a clear indication that these protests have been hijacked by
sinister opportunistic elements and are no longer solely concerned with the
very real dilemma of the cost of education.


The ANC-led government is delivering on its commitment to ensuring that no
child from poor and working class backgrounds will be denied access to
education. To this end, government has implemented fee free schools at basic
education level and the National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) in
higher education to afford the poorest amongst us access to education.
Further measures are currently underway to interrogate broader issues
affecting the funding of higher education and the feasibility of making
higher education and training fee free in South Africa.  


The ANC calls on all stakeholders to return to the negotiation table, where
in good faith, a collective resolution to the current impasse can be found.
Violence and anarchy, including calls for ungovernability, must be rejected
condemned by all those in our society with a genuine interest in functional
institutions of learning that contribute effectively to our country's long
term development.
