Blade: No enemy of Afrikaans - but it can't dominate tertiary institutions

The education minister criticised the domination of Afrikaans in teaching - and called on former Afrikaans universities to enrol more black students. Nzimande criticised the domination of Afrikaans as a language of teaching, particularly at Stellenbosch and North-West universities. “We’re aware at the moment there’s lots of complaints about Stellenbosch University [and] about North-West [University’s] Potchefstroom campus" he said.
