#FeesMustFall should take a step back and claim victories - Wits Council member

Banking Association of South Africa managing director and member of Wits Council, Cas Coovadia, says some of the Wits student leaders do not want to have meetings with university management.

Coovadia says students only want to meet in front of 3000 students to talk, and it is not feasible.

I was there last year. I couldn't speak because students were shutting me down. That's not a recipe for engagement.

Cas Coovadia, member of Wits Council

We have got to get to a situation where we say we are in this together. We ha got to sit down quietly and talk this through, and agree on a process.

Cas Coovadia, member of Wits Council
