Reading Time: < 1 minute

The South African Union of Students (SAUS) says it has reached an agreement with the Higher Education authorities on issues of NSFAS’ payment of student allowances.

Students at Tshwane University of Technology blockaded the entrance to the Pretoria West Campus last week in protest of the eZaga app, which facilitates monthly allowances to students.

SAUS National Spokesperson, Asive Dlanjwa says, “We have reached an agreement. For instance, on the issue of fees, fees shall be kept at R12 and all cards will be given to the students in the next 72-hours and 90% of the students should be on board and paid. By the time students get back to university, all students should be paid.”
