“The fact remains that education is not going to be cheap if the standard one wants to bring in are high coupled with materials and structures to be put in place. Getting qualified and qualitative lecturers cost a lot as well.
“In other civilised climes, students obtain education loans with low-interest rates, but as soon as such student gains employment, they begin to pay back the educational loan. In that way, the pressure is not only on the parents who might have other issues to grapple with.
