Jackson, There are two Authors please, and one is not South African. 
When I last looked at the map, South Africa is still part of Africa.

Universities remain moulders of character and knowledge. When you put 
back into your alma-mata by way of endowment, is that preferential 
treatment? Just curious. As I argued during the presentation of the 
policy, they remain the best entity that symbolizes the Past, the 
present and the future all rolled into one. A student today is a 
business or world leader in the next 5 years. The gown feeds the town!!

This policy actually gives those smaller universities a better chance at 
getting the needed resources as the end game plays out. For the bigger 
universities, we can look at a more equitable fee structure, as a means 
of levelling the playing field.

It is still a reasonable option for burning V4 space while caring for 
the future.
