EFF encourages university walk-ins for those who qualify for free education

EFF Student Council National spokesperson Mangaliso Sambo says that the EFF student command is calling for every student who qualifies for study, but who cannot afford school fees, to report to the institution of their choice.

Sambo adds that students will meet EFF members at various institutions of higher learning, to help acquire free registration and free accommodation.

He says a number of the institutions of learning are struggling to cope with demand.

Many of them - their online systems are down, they have crashed, and you can’t even access the online system.

Anarchy is not caused by opening doors; anarchy is caused by closing doors for more than 600 000 qualifying students.

The moment you say come in and give us your results to register, people will be peaceful and orderly says Sambo. He adds that the morning was dedicated to students who behaved in an orderly manner.

Registering online has proven to be filled with irregularities and it’s a system of failure, says Sambo.
