Education is the government’s top priority, President Jacob said in Durban on Monday.

“I believe education helps to empower. It is the number one priority of government,” he said at a function of the Jacob G Zuma Foundation.

The government’s decision to implement no-fee schools had helped his foundation reduce the amount of money it needed to contribute towards primary and secondary school education, he said.

Zuma was speaking at a send-off for five students nominated by the foundation to study at the American University of Nigeria. It is the second time the foundation is sending students to the university.
