DURBAN – African National Congress (ANC) NEC member Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma says South Africa must fast-track a skills revolution to assist students who are denied access education.

Dlamini-Zuma is speaking at an education lecture at the Durban University of Technology's ML Sultan campus this evening.

The event, which was organised by the KwaZulu-Natal ANCYL, has seen hundreds of members attending.

Dlamini-Zuma has been discussing the history of colonialism and apartheid, and says education was used to oppress black people.

“If education was used as a primary tool for oppression, we must use it as a final tool of liberation.”
