Government: R1 billion available to write off black student debt

The government has announced that there is R1 billion available for writing off over 50,000 students debt. Apparently, it is debt incurred by “previously disadvantaged” who do not include white students. The students, through their destructive protests, managed to get the government to write off their debts.

Observers are of the opinion that the worst is yet to come because these amounts, according to the minister, are only the first phase to write off students’ debts.

A further phase will be investigated to pay off other students’ debts. With the upcoming election, 50,000 votes are not to be ignored, it is said.
