Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande on Tuesday urged a group of matric students to speak out against the burning of university property.
"I hope you will be a generation that will value our educational property. You must say, as young people,- 'don't destroy our property because we may need it'," he said.
He was speaking at the release of a book which chronicles the history of his alma mater, Georgetown Secondary School in Edendale, Pietermaritzburg, where he was a pupil in the 1970s.
