Talks about fees begin

2016-08-10 06:00

THE commission looking into university fees will begin public hearings this week. The hearings will take place in Pretoria today, Wednesday and Thursday, then in Vanderbijlpark on Friday.

This first set of hearings, which the commission’s work outline says will focus on an “overview of the relevant issues”, includes hearings in Thohoyandou, Durban, East London, Cape Town, Bloemfontein and Kimberley.

The Commission of Inquiry into Higher Education and Training was established in January by president Jacob Zuma following protests at campuses around the country. It will be headed by Judge Jonathan Heher.

Last month, Zuma extended the commission’s deadline of June 30 next year. It must now also submit a preliminary report to the president by November.
