An estimated 1000 students marched to Parliament to hand over a memorandum to Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan minutes before he makers his Mid-term Budget Policy Statement.

Gordhan had to step outside to meet students before rushing back to give his speech in a joint sitting of Parliament.

Students are anticipating to hear what Gordhan will say about government spending particularly for the funding crisis in higher education.

Government is under pressure to address education funding during the countries #FeesMuatFall process which has wrecked havoc at universities across the country.
