JOHANNESBURG - African Union commission chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma says children should not be excluded from higher education institutions when their parents can't afford to cover their university costs.

The AU chair spoke at a South African National Editors' Forum dinner on Wednesday evening.

Dlamini-Zuma says Africa hasn't resolved how to properly "massify" higher education, adding that some things are non-negotiable.



She concentrated on African issues and didn't discuss domestic issues in detail during her talk.

Dlamini-Zuma is seen as a possible contender for the African National Congress leadership next year.
