Chaos as Wits students protest over accommodation‚ debts


The protesters moved around the campus chanting struggle songs‚ disrupting some classes and certain departments.

A first-year student‚ Sunitha Karim‚ who was in a queue to get a student card‚ was shocked when protesters “came shouting”‚ demanding that the department close.

“I don’t know why they are protesting. I was supposed to get my student card but they chased us away. I don’t know what will happen tomorrow‚” she said.

Aluta said the SRC had made a recording of the meeting during which university managers had agreed to their requests.

She said the SRC felt betrayed because a number of students had travelled from the Eastern Cape‚ Northern Cape and Limpopo to register but were subsequently not allowed to do so. These students were now homeless‚ she said.
