We as the FDFE welcome the arrogant misinformed statement issued by Markus Trengove and Joshua Nott on behalf of SASCO UCT. What puzzles us is the audacity of this pair of clowns to ‘formally’ and ‘out rightly’ distance themselves from a group which they’ve never been formally nor informally close to. To us this shows that these two are clearly swimming in a river of confusion and are drowning in that river. Further to that, they have confirmed the rumour that they are politically disabled. But moving on to more important things, we have recently learnt that the Cape Argus released an article on the state of SRC elections at UCT claiming that the Democratic Alliance (DA) lost seats in UCT vote Squabble.
This is a clear indication that these elections were not at all fair, if it can be asserted that a political party lost seats in a STUDENTS REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL election which they did not contest. It means that Cape Argus also recognizes that it was the DA and not students contesting the SRC. Actually, the vested interest Helen Zille had in these elections confirms that she wanted to indirectly be the president of UCT SRC since she will never be the president of the Republic of South Africa. But in fact Zille reminds us of the snake in the Garden of Eden, wherein Alex Swanepoel is indeed a political Eve because the rest of the nine DASO candidates cannot claim that they were not aware of what they were doing.
The FDFE welcomes the decision taken by the current SRC to disqualify DASO in these elections which clearly show the sober state they were in when they took that decision. We hope that the Vice Chancellor will prove to be sober and conscious, for once when he makes a ruling on the appeal submitted by these monkeys. We have full faith in him and his leadership and believe that the decision he makes will be on the basis of protecting democracy at UCT at a student governance level.
In these times we are reminded of the wise words of Dr Andro Cathrodriello when he stated: “there are only two ways to achieve a cause, which is through law or violence, and violence is the most effective alternative.” In the case of UCT we dearly hope that law prevails, because in its absence we shall take the effective route. In the spirit of the Martyr, the Great Eugene Terreblanche, we as FDFE will not stand back and watch as incompetence triumphs over fairness. We will fight!
