- Local Twitter user and parody account holder @advobarryroux recently pointed out to his fellow South Africans that the NSFAS follows Kim Kardashian on Twitter
- The admittedly weird revelation garnered many hilarious reactions from South Africans
- Many local Twitter users joked that maybe the student funding organisation was trying to secure money from the reality star
Social media is a weird and wonderful place where people get the chance to spot some questionable things. A post made by the parody account holder @advobarryroux shows that South African student fund organisation NSFAS follows reality TV star, Kim Kardashian.
Heading online, the fake Advo Barry Roux page shared a screenshot that proves that the NSFAS is definitely following Kim K and this left locals speculating vigorously in the comment section of the post.
Given the recent inability of NSFAS to accommodate the needs of many South African students, there was naturally a lot of criticism directed at the organisation. Meanwhile, other Twitter users did what they did best - cracked jokes.
Read a few of their comments below:
"Trying to secure funds."
"That's why some students have not been funded, these people are busy keeping up with the Kardashians."
"What If we are funded by KIM...?"
"The next thing we will be told NSFAS sent R100m to Kim Kardashian to order boobs... I mean books."
"Ko botsa Kanye West. We've been blocked from registering Lena le busy Ka di slay queens..."
"Whoever is in charge the administration of that should be fired... students are facing the real issues but yet you find people keeping up with the Kardashians, wow, I give up."
Briefly News also reported that Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology Blade Nzimande said that around 67% of National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) students are also South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) beneficiaries.
Nzimande stated that this is a great achievement as this means that the "child grant is working," adding that students that may have not been able to study are now reaching the stage where they can apply for tertiary education.
South Africans have taken this news with a pinch of salt. Many Saffas have shared their thoughts about Nzimande's statement about child grants and NSFAS beneficiaries after a post was shared by popular parody account @AdvoBarryRoux on Twitter.
