A citizen’s report on South Cape College strike

BANDILE MLINDAZWE took these photos and said: “The protest started on Tuesday and the student was arrested on Thursday, then a march for his release was organised that same day at both Plett and Kwano police stations. He was kept in Knysna prison overnight, so as EFF leadership we went to negotiate his release. The student, Sibongiseni Casa, is from KwaNokuthula. His mother was happy for the academic success when he had results of 70‰ the previous year. His parents sent him to become a graduate, but the principal of the college failed to listen to the community leaders whom had been advising him on amicable solutions; as a result he decided to make a prisoner than to produce a graduate.”
