The chair of the Commission of Inquiry into Higher Education and Training, Judge Jonathan Heher, faces a mammoth task as he needs to consolidate information into a report for President Jacob Zuma within the next two months.
The commission’s work, which includes determining the feasibility of fee-free tertiary education, draws to an end next month.
Commission spokesperson Musa Ndwandwe said much time would be spent on compiling the report, which must be handed to Zuma by June at the latest.
“We currently do not have a date for the end of the public hearings. However, it is safe to speculate that, by the first week of April, we will be done. This gives commissioners enough time to go through all the evidence as they prepare the final report,” he said.Source: City Press
