EFFSC vows to continue fighting for students at DUT
The newly elected Student Representative Council at the Durban University of Technology vows to continue fighting for better access for students at universities.
The Economic Freedom Fighters Student Command (EFFSC) retained all eight (8) seats at the Durban campuses during this year’s SRC elections at the institution.
The EFFSC assured students that they will continue fighting for them. They are also aware of the challenges students are facing with DUT management, that includes registration, residence, and NSFAS issues.
The current acting President of the EFFSC led SRC, Phumlani Sithole said that they are working overtime solving those issues.
“We will continue to fight for students ensuring that they get better residence and all other issues will be solved in the university for students,” said Sithole.
Sithole also mentioned that some of their members were suspended which negatively affected the party.
“Although challenges were there the EFFSC is proud of its part for working together in unity throughout the elections and we are grateful to the students that voted for us,” he added.
Aphelele Ndabazandile, one of the newly elected SRC members said that his party worked really hard to ensure that they retain all the seats.
“We laid out our plan of where we would continue to help and where it would be difficult but still, will ensure that student’s needs are met,” said Ndabazandile.
The inauguration of the new SRC is set to take place on the 6th of September at Fred Crookes Sport Centre, Steve Biko Campus.
