The Gauteng Department of Education is currently reviewing the bursary awarded to Wits University SRC (Student Representative Council) leader, Mcebo Dlamini.
Speaking to 702's John Robbie, MEC Panyaza Lesufi said the bursary conditions for the #FeesMustFall leader would be re-assessed due to his role in the protests.
I don't agree that we fund somebody who wants to disrupt education, and it's costly... We have no choice but to review that aspect.— Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng education MEC
Dlamini is scheduled to appear in Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on 15th November 2016 for various charges, one being malicious damage to property. He was denied bail on Wednesday following his arrest on Sunday.
