Andile Mpisane has disclosed his plans to give 20 university students that have recurring debt from 2020 with R10 000 towards their fees.
The professional footballer and socialite is doing this as a way to celebrate his 20th birthday today and also join hands with the #FeesMustFall situation that has been trending on social media.
Mpisane is the son of business mogul Shawn Mkhize and Sbu Mpisane. It appears that South African universities are currently facing a national shutdown with organizations demanding cancellation of students’ debt
According to his post, turning 20 and reaching this milestone has him reflecting on his life and how blessed he has been.
“Today marks my 20th birthday and reaching this milestone has me reflecting on my life and how blessed I have been. Growing up requires one to look at things differently”, he said.
Andile also reflected how 2020 was a difficult one for him which also resulted in many people being left unemployed and in unfavourable financial situations.
He continued: “As a young chairman my focus has been on seeing team @royalam_fc grow but we cannot neglect the difficult year we’ve had because of COVID as it has resulted with many people being left unemployed and in unfavourable financial situations.”
“In light of the current #FeesMustFall situation and in celebration of my 20th birthday this year I would like to give back by gifting 20 university students that have recurring debt from 2020 with R10 000 towards their fees. You can also nominate someone in need of this financial aid.”
