The South African Students Congress (SASCO) Top 5 met the African National Congress (ANC) Top 6 with some Ministers (Finance, Police, Higher Education & COGTA) last Friday, 12 March 2021 and today Monday, 15 March 2021 in responding to the demands made by the student movement and the governing party trying to find amicable solutions to the current protests.
SASCO remains committed to the delivery of Free Quality and Compulsory Education in our lifetime. At this point we wish to say that the meetings have been positive and there is hope that before the end of this week we shall find lasting solutions on how the country should deal with Historic Debts, Student Funding, Registration and Justice for Mthokozisi Ntumba.
The student movement welcomes the arrest of four police officers who brutally murdered Mr. Mthokozisi Ntumba on the 10 of March 2021 in Braamfontein and we will be visiting the family so to provide our support.
SASCO will later on this week meet with the task team formulated and the ANC Top 6, then brief the public on solid decisions taken.
The National Shutdown continues up until all our demands are met.
