Remain virgins or we will take away your bursaries. This was the condition given to 16 young women who received the Maidens Bursary Award from the UThukela District Municipality for remaining pure.

In addition, they had to undergo virginity testing every holiday to ensure they were not sexually active.

The municipality introduced the new category of bursaries during its Mayoral Matric Excellence Awards on January 11.

Municipality spokesperson Jabulani Mkhonza said more than 100 matrics, including those who were not virgins, who excelled in their 2015 matric year, received awards.

A total of 113 pupils from various schools got bursaries.
