Nzimande is going nowhere!

24 August 2010

The Minister of Higher Education - Dr Blade Nzimande - is one of the most active, energetic and responsive ministers of the whole Zuma government. He is probably the best minister in the Education cluster since the dawn of democracy. Anybody that suggests otherwise is not only opportunistic but petty.

We believe that the statement attributed to the DA calling for the resignation or removal of Dr Blade Nzimande is naked opportunism of the worst order. Thus far, Higher Education is controlled by liberal ideas similar to those of the DA and they cannot bear a Minister that is willing to challenge their stranglehold on education.

We call on the Minister of Higher Education to relax and do his work diligently; nothing will remove him from his position. We call on the Minister of Higher Education to radically change the face of Higher Education by implementing free Higher Education. We call in the Minister of Higher Education to show his communist colours and introduce the lecturing of Dialectical and Historical Materialism in institution of higher learning.

We have all the confidence in Dr Nzimande as a Minister and only the falling of the skies would change our attitude under the current circumstances.
