Activists seek African language development in universities
A group of activists has launched a campaign calling for President Cyril Ramaphosa to intervene in what they call a 'systematic marginalization' of Africans in mother tongue education.
The campaign is seeking assistance from the public to address the 'exclusion of black academics from literacy and African language development.'
