Quote of the week

I’m not the minister of education. Because if I was, my first reaction would be to close them. For 16 months. And open them after six months, and close the residences for six months. After a year, people will know higher education will be important for their future. You are not doing anyone a favour by studying… That will be my starting point, but unfortunately, I am not a minister of higher education…And after a year, everybody began to appreciate that ‘where I go to university, I am not doing any government any favour. It is my future. And that future is in my hands’.

Taking a short break from blogging

I will be taking a two week break from blogging from today. I will be leaving for France for a two week holiday and decided that unless something earth shattering happens while I am on holiday, I would rather not publish hastily written pieces just to provide content for the Blog. Thanks to all the loyal readers and feisty participants for keeping me on my toes over the past several years. I will be back in two weeks, hopefully rejuvenated and inspired. As we say in Afrikaans: “Dis totsiens, maar nie vaarwel.”
