20 September 2016 5:19 PM

Fort Hare vice chancellor says the council will still meet to decide on the fee increase matter.

University of Fort Hare Vice Chancellor Dr Mvuyo Tom says reports saying the university has decided not to increase fees for 2017 are untrue.

He says the university council has yet to decide on the matter.

Tom says the university was clarifying the implications of the minister's statement regarding the 'missing middle' and National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).

He says the university was explaining to students that there will be no fee increase for these two groups, following Minister of Higher Education Blade Nzimande announcment that government will subsidise the increase for these two groups.
