Calls for Nzimande Removal

The call for Blade Nzimande’s removal from his position as the head of higher education has grown louder in the wake of compelling evidence. Accusations have surfaced, suggesting that Nzimande, along with the SACP and NSFAS board chairperson Ernest Khosa, received kickbacks for tenders from NSFAS service providers. Despite these serious allegations, no decisive action has been taken to address the concerns raised by various organizations.
