Spokesperson, Shirona Patel, says university management have met and will join the vice chancellors of other public universities to address the demands underlying the spate of student protests that swept the country last week.
EFF leader Julius Malema has committed to support the family of the late Mthokozisi Ntumba who died at the hands of the police last week, during the Wits University student protests in Johannesburg.
“If you are not triggered by (Mthokozisi) Ntumba’s death, maybe you will be triggered by your own,” former Wits University SRC President, Orediretse Masebe, said on Friday.
The students made a brief appearance in the Hillbrow Magistrate’s Court, where they were expected to be charged with public violence.
Government has announced additional funding for the National Student Financial Aid Scheme to address the funding shortfall for the 2021 academic year.
