The solution to challenges at tertiary institutions lay in planning for the long term, rather than the short term, says acting Public Protector Kholeka Gcaleka.

"The issues are with the [higher education] sector. We have also picked up what the institutions themselves have raised, that there is no dialogue amongst themselves on the future of higher education, on the transformation of higher education, on the current challenges that are facing higher education and how collectively those who are involved are able to resolve those challenges," Gcaleka said.

She said the Office of the Public Protector was concerned about ongoing protests at institutions and were intervening to ensure that students returned to lecture halls.
