Free Education Movement (FEM) member at the University of the Free State (UFS), Asive Dlanjwa, says there will not be a march to the provincial government building today. He could not confirm when the march would be.
He further adds that he and other student leaders cannot afford to march today as they have to attend the court case of the remaining 34 students who were arrested at the Fees Must Fall protests earlier on this week.
He also added that another area of focus is ensuring that the university management does not evict students from campus residences tomorrow at 12:00. Yesterday at noon, the university announced that students in residences will have to vacate their rooms by 12:00 on Saturday 15 October 2016.
From the media release sent by UFS management, arrangements were only made to accommodate international, masters and doctorate students only.
UFS SRC leader, Lindokuhle Ntuli, was unable to comment as he was in back-to-back meetings with university management. UFS communication director, Lacea Loader, is yet to respond to OFM news’ questions with regard to this matter.
