Meeting between SRC and Unisa management at a standstill
After the Student Representative Council (SRC) of the University of South Africa (Unisa) called for a national shutdown should certain demands not be met by the institution on 7 January, a meeting on Tuesday to address these issues seem to have born no fruit.
Speaking to Bruce Whitfield, Unisa national SRC president Wadzanai Mazhetese says the response by management was not satisfactory.
Today across our regions I can confirm that already students have begun to shut down campuses.Wadzanai Mazhetese, President at Unisa national SRC
He adds that this is an unfolding crisis and the university management is failing to provide adequate leadership.
One of the biggest issues is the closing down of some courses which have led to some campuses offering no more than five accredited courses.
