Quote misleads

2019-01-23 06:00

In Express (16/01) on page 8, in the article “On-campus registration at UFS to commence later this month”, a quote from the media statement was incorrectly attributed to Lacea Loader, the director of communication and marketing.

The correct explanation should have read: “A group of students under the banner of the South African Student Congress’ Bloemfontein branch operated without engaging with the university’s existing student structures.

“They disrupted student academic services on the Bloemfontein campus and blocked the entrance to the campus at one of the five gates on Wednesday, 9 January, indicating the university ma­nagement has not effectively dealt with some student-rela­ted matters pertaining to the 2019 registration process.”

The story mistakenly gave an impression that Loader implied that the UFS management did not deal with the concerns of the protesting group of students.

The story referred to the protesting students who raised concerns that the university’s management did not deal with some of the student-related matters regarding the 2019 registration process.
