Wits University management has expressed disappointment after #FeesMustFall student protesters kicked them out of a Peace Accord meeting at the Holy Trinity Church on Wednesday.
The meeting, which was attended by struggle stalwart and social actvist Jay Naidoo and former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, hoped to broker peaceful talks between the students and university management.
702's John Robbie spoke to deputy vice-chancellor of the university, Professor Tawana Kupe, on how management intends to resolve the matter.
Some people believe that we don't want to engage with any students or negotiations, we went into that meeting with that particular spirit.— Prof Tawana Kupe, Wits University Deputy Vice-Chancellor
In recent developments, the shooting of former SRC leader Shaeera Kalla has sparked national outcry about police brutality. Police are investigating the details surrounding the incident.
In the context of peaceful protest then we don't have police with rubber bullets and stun grenades, you only have minds engaging each other robustly.— Prof Tawana Kupe, Wits University Deputy Vice-Chancellor
