“We are no longer safe at the University of Limpopo” say students


Registrar, Kwena Masha in the University of Limpopo (UL) released a statement on Tuesday detailed that the executive committee of senate, in consultation with the Students Representative Council (SRC), agreed that the papers set for Monday will now be written on Saturday, 20 November 2019.

This follows the stabbing of four students on campus who were wearing EFFSC t-shirts on Saturday night 26 October 2019.

According to the statement by the Economic Freedom Fighter Student Command (EFFSC), the stabbing took place late on Saturday night when the outgoing SASCO president illegally entered campus with three other people, they allegedly assaulted students and in the process, four EFFSC members were stabbed.

Since then, security on campus has been intensified and the EFFSC say they will ensure the safety of students and have condemned the attack.

“We want to guarantee all students of safety on and off campus and we further advise them to use the extended time to prepare for on-going examinations which will continue soon,” the statement by UL read.

Professor Masha said despite increased security, several students continued to target and intimidate others.

“Both executive management and the student representative council are concerned about the impact of these actions on exam preparations. As a result, all exam paper scheduled for 28 October will be rescheduled to another date. Exam will resume on Tuesday,” said Masha

He has since appealed to all students to refrain from participating in acts of violence and remain calm. “Those found to be perpetrators of these acts of violence will be severely dealt with accordance with the students’ code of conduct. When asked for comment police spokesperson could not provide,” he explained.

Black Santa Claus took to twitter and expressed his frustration comment: “EFFSC comrades are being stabbed by SASCO comrades at the University of Limpopo”   .

Other views by Khutso on twitter: “Ever since EFFSC won the SRC election it hasn’t been business as usual at UL, SASSCO has declared war against EFFSC because they are failing to accept that they have lost the election. Former SASCO SRC president known as Shungulugu came with a bunch of thugs and terrorised four students who were wearing EFFSC t-shirt and all four stabbed students were admitted to hospital.
