Ndlovu family seeks legal help
The Ndlovu family seeks legal help in resolving their son’s case, Sandile Ndlovu who was assaulted and stabbed in a lecture room two weeks ago at the Durban University of Technology, Steve Biko campus.
The family had a meeting with the university on the 17th of September to ask for a written report on what happened during the attack. Upon their arrival, the Ndlovu family says that they were given a verbal update instead of a written report, which led to them losing confidence in DUT’s management.
“We have acquired the services of a legal and will be extending it further in acquiring the services of a private investigator to assist in not only resolving this case however bringing the perpetrator of this gruesome attack on Sandile to book to face the full might of the law,” says Family spokesperson, Tshepo Mokoena.
The university’s management claims that they have given the police access to the CCTV footage. Regretfully, there was no camera footage of the actual attack against the student.
“The University is also eager for the suspect to be apprehended. Management can confirm that the university continues to engage with the Ndlovu family and members of the family were on campus to meet with colleagues,” said DUT management.
On Wednesday, 18 September, Nine students were arrested at DUT, following a violent student protest under the hashtag #JusticeForSandile. The Ndlovu family calls for peace and for students to go back to classes and focus on their education.
“Our views still stand and would like to distance ourselves from any form of unruly and destructive behavior students should refrain from destroying or behaving in any unbecoming activities under the #JusticeForSandile,” said Mokeona.
Sandile is in a still in a very critical condition at the hospital however he is responding well.
