WSU’s First Divisional Model SRC Inaugurated

16 April 2014, 07:58

A new and informed WSU Student Representative Council body has been inaugurated under oath at the institution’s Mthatha campus. 

Taking oath at WSU’s Zamukulungisa site in Mthatha, the newly elected student bodies swore to be faithful to the students of Walter Sisulu University, to obey, observe, uphold and maintain the SRC Constitution as approved by the Administrator on February 28, 2014.

Amongst other things, the WSU SRC solemnly and sincerely swore to always:

  • “Uphold University Rules and Procedures;
  • Promote all that will advance the University, and oppose all that will harm it;
  • Protect and promote the rights of all WSU students;
  • Discharge my duties with all my strength and talents to the best of my knowledge and ability and true to the dictates of my conscience;
  • Do justice to all;
  • Abide, obey, observe and maintain all the values as contained in the SRC Constitution as approved on the 28 February 2014;
  • Devote myself to the well-being of WSU and all of its students and;
  • Exercise confidentiality and the highest level of privacy of all proprietary and private information concerning students, others associated with the university and university business,” chanted the newly elected student body.

Walter Sisulu University held its first electronic Student Representative Council elections on 3rd April which were also in line with the university’s new divisional governance system.

Van Staden commended the young student leadership for once again this year, through their cooperation and
participation, amending our SRC constitution to be in line with the Institutional statute which prescribes a divisional management system for the Institution.

“We congratulate you as you are on the verge of an historical journey as pioneers of student leadership in this
new divisional system. May, through your leadership and guidance the WSU brand be strengthened through reputation-building,” Van Staden said.

According to the Administrator, this year's WSU student elections are ground-breaking for a number of reasons which are:

• WSU’s first election for divisional governance and management system;

• Four SRCs will be campus-specific and accountable to each campus rector;

• Opportunity for campus-specific niche development for student affairs;

• Four presidents will serve as advisors to the new, leaner Institutional Management Committee.

Van Staden concluded by saying that this year's elections students conducted themselves with political maturity – with no incidents of intimidation, threats or violence.

The Mthatha campus elections were won by the ANC Youth League with- Sinelizwi Mgontshongo as campus president; and in Buffalo City and Queenstown SASCO prevailed victorious with presidents: Mishack Mugabe and Sakhe Mtebe, respectively. The Butterworth Campus president has yet to be chosen.
