By Matshidiso The situation at Soshanguve campus is still uncomfortable. It`s a very devastating moment to students at Tshwane University of Technology, as they were asked to vacate university buildings by 2pm today. About 12000 to 13000 students from department of information and communication technology (ICT) and humanities were majorly affected by this immediate closure. Students` dreams are slowly being shuttered. “We are not going to be apologetic. The university management is trying to demoralise us. We urge the students to remain resolute and to stand together. How can students be given 24-hours to vacate? We will challenge this decision.” TUT SRC leader Sthembiso Shandu said. “Running away from issues affecting us won`t help us, but the condition we in will forever be the same and throwing insults won`t help either. No student will be forced to vacate, we need to fight this once and for all. Again we are not forcing people to remain. Those who choose to be selfishly running away from issues affecting us must know that history will judge them; it is up to us as students to sellout or claims\ our victories. Sthembiso Shandu said. According to Prof Stanley Mukhola (Acting Deputy Vice Chancellor) this morning on ANN7 TUT accept a memorandum from TUT Soshanguve students and they answered to every item (including financial exclusions, unblocking) except for two issues which were: 1. free education (keep in mind that TUT is not under government and cannot take that decision). 2. Demerging Soshanguve campuses from TUT, of which the management refused to that idea and the fools (some not even registered as students of TUT) walked out of the meeting. Photo: ANN7
