During his address last night, the President gave us an update when it came to where we are with getting it. This comes as we see other countries start rolling out vaccinations to their citizens.

President Ramaphosa said that there are now many initiatives in the world to speed up the development of a vaccine but that South Africa awaits confirmation from medicine regulators that these vaccines are safe, effective and suitable for our needs.

"We continue to collaborate with our partners in the international community to ensure that all countries have access to an effective and affordable vaccine," he said.

South Africa is a part of the Covax facility which is the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Global Vaccine Access Facility. They aim to pool resources and share vaccine development risk and thus ensure equitable access to vaccines when they become available, Ramaphosa said.

We are encouraged that the Solidarity Fund will be making the initial contribution of R327 million towards this vaccine procurement on behalf of our country.

The Covax vaccine has shown efficacy levels of between 70 and 95 per cent from its three trials of candidate vaccines.

The country's Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) will review the approval applications when received from the developers and authorise their use.

Ramaphosa said, "As we have said in the past the only viable defence we will have against Covid-19 will be the vaccine" but continued to say that as long as we don't have it, we are still our best protection and should continue wearing masks, practicing social distancing and keeping up hand hygiene.

We must remember that as much as we want to relax, this virus does not take a holiday. This has been a difficult year for us as a country. It has severely tested our resolve and demanded great sacrifices of each and every one of us. But even as the holidays approach, we cannot let our guard down.

South Africans are also advised to avoid large gatherings and going to indoor spaces with poor ventilations. 

The country has now also put a resurgence plan into place which was developed with the help of the World Health Organisation. Through this plan, Government is doing the following:

  • Making more capacity available at hospitals and clinics in hotspot areas

  • Expanding public health interventions such as testing, contact tracing, isolation and quarantine

  • Ramping up awareness campaigns around public health regulations

With the festive season looming, we are urged to act with caution. Should we be traveling for the holidays, we should make sure it isn't unnecessary. 

On traveling, Ramaphosa said, "We can also reduce infection risk by wearing a mask in public transport, keeping the vehicle windows open and maintaining prevention measures on arrival".

We cannot return to the darker days of June and July, when transmission of the virus was widespread and the lives of our family and friends were at risk.

We are also encouraged to download the Covid Alert SA mobile app that can notify us if we are exposed to the virus and thereby help to break the chain of transmission.

Here Are The New Restrictions For Lockdown Level 1

Careers Portal Latest -

Friday, December 4, 2020 - 09:41Author: Sakinah Samuels

We all sat down for another family meeting last night to hear what our fates would be. Another lockdown? No more alcohol? Another cigarette ban? Well, here's what happened.

Article Category: News

We all sat down for another family meeting last night to hear what our fates would be. With the concern of resurgences in the country, the President announced some changes when it came to restrictions. 

Before Ramaphosa took to the podium, he had a meeting with the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCP) as well as consulted with Premiers, metro mayors and traditional leaders.

From these engagements, Government decided to mark the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality a coronavirus hotspot and also to have all Alert Level 1 regulations in place with some changes such as:

  • Curfew is now from 10pm until 4am
    • Essential workers are however allowed to work during these hours
  • Alcohol can only be sold between 10am and 6pm from Mondays to Thursdays
  • Alcohol is forbidden in public spaces, including beaches and parks
  • For gatherings, indoor events can only have 100 attendees and outdoor events can only have 250
  • For gatherings, at all times, the total number of people in a venue may not exceed more than 50% of the capacity of the venue.
  • All post-funeral gatherings are prohibited

As for the rest of the country, all existing Level 1 restrictions remain in place.

On how Government identifies a hotspot, Ramaphosa said:

... consideration is given to the number of new COVID-19 cases per day, the testing rate within the population, the percentage positivity rate within the population, the number of active cases, the number of hospital admissions and the number of deaths.

Government has also decided to give the go ahead to traditional leaders when it comes to initiation season in the Eastern Cape. However, no initiation schools will be allowed in Nelson Mandela Bay.

Due to the resurgences seen, the President reminded us that, "until a vaccine is developed and distributed, we remain our own best protection against COVID-19".

South Africans are therefore urged to continue wearing masks in public, to practice social distancing, to avoid large gatherings, to avoid being in indoor spaces with poor ventilation and to regularly wash and sanitise your hands.

Ramaphosa also continues to encourage us all to download the Covid Alert SA app as it can notify us if we are exposed to the virus and thereby help to break the chain of transmission.

Strikes For NSFAS Allowances To Be Released

Thursday, December 3, 2020 - 11:25Author: Sakinah Samuels

Students at Tshwane University of Technology's (TUT) Pretoria Campus are now on strike over the unallocated NSFAS allowances to students. These protests are affecting the University's examination schedule as students were advised to go home.

Students at Tshwane University of Technology's (TUT) Pretoria Campus are now on strike over the unallocated NSFAS allowances to students. These protests are affecting the University's examination schedule as students were advised to go home.

A statement released by the University read:

Due to incidents of protest and barricading of the main gate at the Pretoria Campus this morning, students who are unable to access the exam venue, are advised to return home and continue to study.

It continues to say, "Examinations scheduled to take place today, will be rescheduled and the new date communicated with affected students."

The University has said that the behaviour seen by a "small group of disgruntled students" is unacceptable.

The University will investigate the matter and take disciplinary action against the perpetrators.

The Minister announced last week that NSFAS would be extending allowances students receive due to the academic year being extended. However, there was a condition for this. Only students who has their academic year extended pass 2020 will have their allowances extended. 

TUT has said that they were asked to submit a list of names and amounts required for living allowances by Friday. After this is done, NSFAS will then confirm the release of the allowances.

"The university is not in a position to pay the living allowances until NSFAS confirms the release of the allowances," the University explained.

TUT now urges students to please be patient while it engages with NSFAS while the situation on campus is being monitored. 

NSFAS is not only causing trouble at TUT. Students at the University of Venda (Univen) were told to vacate their residences on 1 December after a protest turned violent. Protest action has been ongoing at the University due to students being unhappy about their NSFAS allowances.

In Cape Town, Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) students took to social media to air out their grievances concerning the University. Students even had #CPUTmustfall trending, again. The situation has escalated enough at CPUT  that the University itself decided to pay for the allowances while NSFAS experiences delays.

Hey TUT Fam! Due to incidents of protest and barricading of the main gate at the Pretoria Campus this morning, students...

When Will The President Be Speaking?

There are probably so many messages going around WhatsApp groups right now saying that the President is speaking this week, maybe even tonight. Well, here are the facts as well as some opinions worth noting. 

No official announcement has been made pertaining when the President will speak but we are all sure that it will be soon as resurgences are seen across the country. Speculation that Ramaphosa is speaking tonight probably stems from the President having had another one of his important meetings with the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) yesterday.

The NCCC has recommended the following which we could expect the President to address:

  • Curfew between 10PM and 4AM
  • Hotspots having alcohol sales only allowed from Monday to Thursday
  • Bars and restaurants in hotspots to only be open until 9PM
  • Gathering limited to 100 people indoors and 250 people outdoors

These recommendations are being discussed at a meeting with the Presidential Coordinating Council today which will include premiers, metro mayors and local government representatives.

Analyst Karima Brown told eNCA yesterday, "I have been told very reliably that the President is indeed going to be addressing the nation tomorrow evening and it is going to focus on the distressing rise in Covid numbers in the Eastern Cape as well as in the Western Cape".

Students At War With University Over NSFAS Allowances

Careers Portal Latest -

Thursday, December 3, 2020 - 10:18Author: Sakinah Samuels

Students at the University of Venda were told to vacate their residences after a protest turned violent. Protest action has been ongoing at the University due to students being unhappy about their NSFAS allowances.

Article Category: News

Students at the University of Venda (Univen) were told to vacate their residences on 1 December after a protest turned violent. Protest action has been ongoing at the University due to students being unhappy about their NSFAS allowances.

Since 25 November, Univen students have been protesting and even submitted a memorandum of demands to University management. Grievances from students come after some were not receiving their NSFAS allowances while allegedly, others received double. They are now demanding that the management rolls out NSFAS allowances faster or they will continue protesting. 

They believe that that the memorandum they submitted was not attended to and that they were only told to vacate their accommodation spaces as a response. Some students were seen sleeping on the streets as they had nowhere to go and had no money either.

One of the demands included in the memorandum, alongside NSFAS allowances, is that the University gives students their course transcripts even if they owe money to Univen. 

Dr Takalani Dzaga, spokesperson for Univen, has said that management is currently discussing how they can resolve the demands and that students were told to vacate residences for their own safety as well as the safety of staff. He also said that the University responded to the memorandum of demands.

... a number of students are continuing to receive their allowances and there also instances that you will find that some students are receiving double payment and these are issues that are easily resolved by our financial aid section.

Univen even went as far as hiring a private security company so that they can keep things in order at the University as students protested and are said to have been told to remove students who are protesting.

The University's Student Representative Council (SRC) President, Gift Chauke, however contended saying:

We only need implementation, we are not going to vacate the campus the reason being we have students that are from far.

He continued to say that they suspended the strike to give management 48 hours to come back to them on their demands and that they will not vacate the campus until this happens. 

"The demands were the issue of allowances. There’s an issue of academic records, also December allowances because the year has been extended. We have given them a few hours to come and solve their issues," said Chauke.

Chauke said that over 1000 students did not receive their allowances.

Another students alleged that management turned the water off on campus as well. "They are giving students 24 hours to vacate the campus which does not make sense because online learning has never helped students at the University of Venda," he said.

In a statement released by the University following the initial protests in November, they said, "The University Management will continue to engage the student leadership in order to restore the situation back to normal."

The South African Students Congress has rejected the Minister's proposal of a tuition and accommodation fee increase. SASCO has also responded to other pivotal announcements made by the Minister. 

Minister in charge of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande, made it clear that fee increases need to happen to keep higher educations sustained but that he will make sure that increases do not exceed 4.7% for tuition and 6.7% for accommodation. Many reactions to this have however not been that positive with SASCO saying:

SASCO is disappointed again that DHET continues to approve and further increase the exorbitant fees of institutions. It has been the long standing view of SASCO that fees are currently high and need to be reviewed before a decision is taken on any increment.

The Congress believes that this increase to fees will place households under further economic distress. They now want University and College councils to reject the proposal on these increases and to have the current fee structure reviewed and not increased.

Minister Nzimande announced that NSFAS allowances will be extended for students who are completing the 2020 academic year outside of 2020. SASCO welcomes announcement of the extension of NSFAS allowances but are said to be worried that no decision has been taken when it comes to private landlords.

We wish to implore on the University management to ensure that no student will be evicted and we will be closely monitoring December and January to ensure this doesn’t happen.

SASCO wants there to be no further delays when it comes to the laptops being supplied to students through NSFAS. The department said that students will be receiving laptops in 2021. 

The Congress also applauded the Department for handled the N+2 appeals which they has has been the one thing which has frustrated and left students despondent. On this, they said, "this matter must never again be used as measures to exclude poor students especially when they have valid reasons for their academic delays."

They also welcome the appointment of a Ministerial Infrastructure Advisory Committee as this was one of the demands they submitted during their march in October. 

As for the NSFAS board which was announced to be appointed, the Congress says they are happy and are excited about what the student leaders can contribute. 

"What excites us is the fact that these comrades come with a wealth of knowledge and have an understanding of some of the issues which led to the almost collapse of the institution, and they surely understand what becomes their responsibility and the importance of the institution to the poor and future of this country," SASCO explained.

We won’t rest until all our demands are all met.

They concluded their statement bu wishing best of luck to those writing their final examinations for 2020.
