Minister warns students over criticism

Deputy Higher Education Minister Mduduzi Manana (28) hit a fire storm on his appointment to the Cabinet. Bongani Nkosi turns up the heat. People say I support the president. Who else should I support? I support the leadership as elected by the Polokwane conference. I do not see how supporting the president of the ANC, the president of the republic, is factional. As I said, people may criticise, but they must not undermine the authority of the president. I would not know what factionalist stunt I pulled to get appointed.(Mail & Guardian 06 November 2012
