The Fees Commission of Inquiry looking into the feasibility of free tertiary education will resume with its public hearings on 22 August 2016 at the Mbombela Stadium in Mpumalanga.
The Council on Higher Education, which has recommended a six percent tuition fee hike for next year, and South African Students Congress which has vowed to oppose any tuition fee increase, are expected to make submissions.
The Fees Commission's spokesperson, Musa Ndwandwe, says, “We’re hoping that their submissions will further enlighten the commission on their respective positions. We appeal to the public to come and have a better understanding of what is happening.”
