Swazi Students to Protest Funding Cuts

Swazi students to protest against education funding cuts and reduced allowances

Swaziland's students have pledged to bring their country to a standstill on 21 March 2012 as they take to the streets to voice their anger about education funding cuts and new political conditions placed on study bursaries.

They argue that the proposed 60 percent cut in allowances will put tertiary education out of the reach of many poorer families.

They are also not happy that scholarships will not be awarded to students who are members of political parties, which are banned in that country.
