South Africans were shocked over the high school fees and some reacted with hilarious memes. Briefly.co.za took a look at some of the reactions the post gathered.
Twitter user, @balty_sipho, commented:
"The sad thing here is that a normal person or ordinary worker's salary in South Africa is R90 000 per (year) how are they going to be able to afford such school fees? It simply shows by design the good education is for those from the elite not for the poor majority of our people."
