All student voices must be heard - Adam Habib #Fees2017

Prof Adam Habib, Vice-Chancellor at WITS University says there are conflicting voices within the student movement. He says he has received letters from a number of students who want to continue with their studies and want the protests to stop.

Habib says he wants to hear from the students what is it they want and be able to act accordingly. The system cannot be held ransom by a small group of people claiming to represent the students he says.

This would be a very nice way to proceed, it will help the students as well as the universities.

What I am saying is that the voices of ordinary people who are studying should be taken to account.

Habib asks if the country is prepared to sacrifice 2016 academics in the desire to have free education? He says this question should be put to the students and hear what they have to say.

Habib said free education cannot be achieved overnight but believes there is merit in free education in the long run.
