While most students seem caught up in action over colonialists who must fall, fees that should drop and ultimately free education.

And while others seem hell-bent on making the most of their pyrotechnic activities to the detriment of others, there is a fringe group that wants to make most out of its spirituality.

The Supernatural Take Over - Diplomatic Christian Conference is an all night event that will be held at the CPUT Bellville campus next Friday 11 March.

This is organised by youth development organisation Complete Life Centre whose main aim is life skills and spiritual empowerment of young people.

Anele Heli, organiser, said: “There is a serious problem in tertiary institutions nationwide. Facilities are vandalized, burned, students are shot, there is a strike delaying enrolment. No one can deny that the problem is getting out of hand.

We are hoping to introduce sober minded thinking and solutions. We feel it is important for everyone to calm down.,”

The Centre is supported by Bridges of Hope which is also involved with assistance to primary school students, high school learners and varsity students.

They address gangsterism, drugs and crime. “The entrance to the event is free and we are inviting everyone especially the tertiary students. It will be a night of peace, love and entertainment. There will be motivational talk as well. We are also calling on community stakeholders to also come on board and assist were they can. As you know this is a free event no profit will be made so we need all the support we can get in order to provide things such as transport if possible,” said Heli.
