Transformation doesn't happen in a single moment - Adam Habib

University of the Witwatersrand Vice Chancellor Prof. Adam Habib says the level of instability in the universities is devastating.

He says the Faculty of Science programmes, in particular, will be interrupted for the rest of the year if universities do not resume academic activities within two weeks.

Habib says 17 institutions are currently shutdown due to ongoing Fees Must Fall student protests for free decolonised education.

The institutions that can address inequality will be destroyed by the very people who want to address inequality in society he says.

If nobody graduates this year, it means nobody can come next year.

Prof. Adam Habib, Wits Vice Chancellor

My fear is that the people who are playing around with the system have no idea what they are playing around with. We can't continue like this. The level of instability in the system is devastating.

Prof. Adam Habib, Wits Vice Chancellor

I have heard situations where staff members want to throw in the towel. They are saying we are not prepared to live under these circumstances.

Prof. Adam Habib, Wits Vice Chancellor

The institutions that can address inequality will be destroyed by people who want to address inequality in the society.
