JOHANNESBURG - Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has called on all matriculants who passed their grade 12 extremely well in the past to report to any institution of higher learning of their choice next year.

In a new year's message posted on the party’s twitter account, Malema says academically deserving students should be admitted freely in South African University and FET colleges.

Malema says they will be at the gates of every institution of higher learning next year to ensure that priority will not only be given to those who can afford to pay.

EFF's Mbuyiseni Ndlozi says, “These people by now some of them to be petrol attendant, cashiers in different retail and restaurants and some security guards.

“We’ve got matric and you’ve passed extremely well, 2018 is there year in which all of us must go and advance our studies.”

Earlier this month, President Jacob Zuma announced there will be free fee higher education for poor and working class students.

Zuma has not announced how this will be implemented.
