NMDS must give students their allowances


The Editor,

Students in some local institutio­ns of higher learning are boycotting classes because the National Manpower Developmen­t Secretaria­t (NMDS) has not yet paid their stipends.

We desperatel­y need the money and we therefore appeal to NMDS to give us the allowances as we need to pay rentals, buy food and most importantl­y our school materials.

Most of us come from poor background­s and our families cannot afford to feed us or pay our accommodat­ion bills while the secretaria­t sorts its affairs out.

If we do not get the stipends before the end of this month, only God knows what will become of us.

The ministers responsibl­e also have to intervene because students are suffering. B.T Maseru
