Cape Town – The National Union of Mineworkers Youth Structure (NUM YS) on Thursday called on big business to fund higher education.

“Those who own the means of production should take responsibility to funding our higher education as they own the country’s economy and they [benefit most from our education],” NUM YS said in a statement.

NUM YS called for the involvement of major SA companies including Lonmin, Anglo Platinum, Anglo Gold Ashanti, Harmony Gold, Sasol, and Sibanye Gold.
