The Department of Higher Education has called on KZN’s Uthukela mayor Dudu Mazibuko to scrap the controversial maidens bursary next year.

Minister Blade Nzimande’s spokesman Khaye Nkwanyana said he believed the mayor had crossed the line by creating a bursary category for girls who had remained virgins.

“As much as we appreciate what the mayor did, we believe the maidens bursary should not be continued. We will talk to the mayor and ask her to scrap this category,” he said.
