The Tshwane University of Technology first year students recently had a meeting with the Students Representative Council to map a way forward to avoid future protests and find a better solution to resolve issues within management and students without having to vandalise school property.
Phindokuhle Phakathi,a journalism student at the Soshanguve campus had this to say,"We musn't break any school property because the property we vandalise is meant for us to utilise, therefore what are we going to benefit from that?"
The first year students were recently protesting for amongst others,the National Students Financial Aid Scheme,and the university management took "precautionary measures" by notifying all students to vacate the school's residences.
The university's spokesperson,Willa de Ruyter says that the university even took further steps by obtaining a court interdict to prevent further protests on its campuses.
