The rich must pay for education – Nzimande 

Higher Education and Training Minister Blade Nzimande says the government cannot subsidise students from wealthy families for free tertiary education. 

"It is very unclear to government why families who can afford private schools should, under the current circumstances, be receiving further state subsidies for their children at universities," Nzimande told reporters in Pretoria. 

"To subsidise these students would require taking funding from the poor to support cheaper higher education for the wealthy, which is not justifiable in a context of inequality in our country. We cannot subsidise the child of a cleaner or unemployed person in the same way we subsidise the child of an advocate, doctor or investment banker."
