Last week students at the National University of Science and Technology marched against the exorbitant tuition fees, against the deferment of studies, against the criminal exclusion of students from lectures on the basis of their poverty yet you maintained a deafening silence. Following this march the students voted Kurayi Hoyi President for the Student Representative Council while he was on detention I for one, the new Secretary General was barred on campus for leading the disgruntled students yet they voted for me in those circumstances. Therefore I strongly urge you to look into the students issue with discretion and with a common sense of a shared vocation, a shared vision and a shared achievement. Why are we still being persecuted? What happened to our revolution? What happened to our unity based on our shared history of financial and political subjugation? Are we being punished for academic terrorism? Mr. Premier, could you state your position on tertiary education in the country?

I remain;

Samson Nxumalo, Secretary General

(Students Representative Council) National University of Science and Technology
