Mkhize says there's no such thing as a 'free education'

ANC Treasurer-General Dr Zweli Mkhize has told University of Fort Hare students that “in reality” there is no such thing as “free education”. 

Times Live says that addressing students at a Young Communist League event on “Progressive Black Academics” at the university’s East London campus on Wednesday evening‚ he faced off with student‚ socialist and communist radicals’ cries against shortcomings of the National Student Financial Aid Scheme and calls for free education. Mkhize‚ a former student activist himself when he was at University of Natal‚ said young people needed to differentiate between idealism and realism in their calls for free education. He said the youth of his time also believed in free education and free healthcare “but in reality, free does not mean it is free because somebody has to pay for it.” But his views did not go unchallenged by the audience.
