ANC Women's League supports PYA call for peaceful exams

15 November 2015

The ANC Women's League in the Western Cape would like to send a message of support to all young people who have joined efforts to encourage peaceful exams. Education is a fundamental human right deserved by all children in this country. The ANC Women's League Western Cape is encouraged by President Zuma's decision not to increase fees next year. We hope that this decision is an indication towards realizing free education.

As parents, we know exactly the toll the weight of University fees can take on families, but we would be amiss not to acknowledge the huge strides in easing that weight that the ANC government has taken over the period, through such interventions as NSFAS and University subsidies and we know that the journey to complete free education is one the ANC is singularly committed to.

ANC Youth League, Young Communist League, SASCO and COSAS Western Cape, have shown exemplary leadership in trying to quell the violence during student protests and we commend their efforts.
