Desperate student gets rejected for university funding

Briefly News previously reported a story of a student named Bubu Sithole, who thought that it was the end of the road when she had to come up with funds before she could register for her 2020 studies.

The traumatised student felt defeated and had packed her bags to start heading home:

"I’m currently packing my bags and going back home because I have outstanding fees and can’t register. I owe R29k &they want 17k for me to register provisionally. I was rejected by NSFAS twice in a row even after I sent through my mom’s death certificate and my dad’s disability papers."
