Students are planning a national day of action as their demands for President Jacob Zuma to release the much-awaited Fees Commission Report intensify
In a statement, Wits University’s outgoing student representative council (SRC) said it was talking to student leaders at other universities to rally support.
“We call on a national day of action for all stakeholders to march together, with student leaders to rally behind the call for free education to force government to release the report on the fees commission,” the SRC said.
‘Take to the picket line’
The EFF SRC said that, while they empathised with the students at UCT and CPUT, they have been waiting for the outgoing SRC to relinquish their powers before possibly endorsing a shutdown at the institution.
