In response to this, Twitter user Bonny.R (@Bonny1gp) shared a controversial theory via Twitter.

The young lady proposed that the R350 be paid to those with a matric certificate, but that graduates receive a greater amount.

Bonny suggested that academics with a diploma receive R700, university graduates get R1 000, while those with post-graduate degrees receive R 1500.

"You getting Jobs from the non matric holders, don't belittle them. Just appreciate the R350."

Nokukhanya Ntanzi (@uNokukhanya) responded,

"What if the people with matric wanted to get degrees but weren’t able to get funding? Class doesn’t count in crises, we all eat and we all die."
