Making headlines:
TVET students will show 'true colours' in 2017 says EFF MP
Gambia president warns against election protest
And, we are no longer garden boys of the DA says Sadtu



Technical and Vocational Education and Training college students might follow the example of their university peers and protest in 2017, an EFF MP hinted yesterday.


Students protested at several universities around the country this year to demand free education.

EFF  MP Sipho Mbatha said the EFF knew that National Student Financial Aid Scheme beneficiaries did not have to pay any fees.

However, the department could not pay for accommodation or transport for all TVET college students.


The Gambia President Yahya Jammeh, who has been in office for more than two decades, has warned that even peaceful protests will not be permitted after the upcoming election.

Today, more than 880 000 registered voters will head to more than 1 400 polling stations around the country whose population is around 1.9-million.

President Jammeh, 51, who took control of the West African country in 1994, said that his victory in the election was all but assured with divine intervention, and warned the opposition against protesting.


A meeting to discuss the "jobs for cash" report yesterday was marred by racial undertones after the DA called the report by the South African Council of Educators "nonsensical".

Unions, governing bodies and Sace were briefing Parliament’s basic education committee, where they reported some of the problems they had with the report and its findings.

These included the lack of speed with which the report was compiled, as well as the generalisations in the findings.
