YCL disappointed about Cuba students; wants them to pay back what was spent

yclsaThe decision by six South African students to give up their scholarships in Cuba because of an allowance disagreement is disappointing, the Young Communist League of SA (YCLSA) said on Friday. "The department of health had spent half-a-million rand already on each student's training, which will have been wasted as they had not completed their training yet," spokesman Khaya Xaba said. "We are puzzled as to why the stipend of R1600 per month was insufficient for the students when accommodation and food was provided for them… As the YCLSA we demand that these students pay back the half-a-million that the government spent on each student."
