Students demand justice for Mlungisi Madonsela
Economic Freedom Fighters’ Student Command marched to the Durban City Hall to deliver a memorandum demanding justice for the late student, Mlungisi Madonsela.
The late DUT student was shot and killed by an alleged private security guard from the institution during a protest earlier this year. The National Prosecutor Authority recently announced that they will not be prosecuting the security guard because there was not enough evidence.
Deputy Chairperson of EFFSC Nokuthula Ntantiso said that they are marching to appeal against the NPA’s decision.
“This memorandum will be handed to the NPA and Acting Mayor office demanding that the accused be detained for Mlungisi death and ensure that he gets justice he deserves,” said Ntantiso.
Madonsela’s sister Sbekezelo Makhanya emotionally recalled the pain of the family after losing Mlungisi.
“We are asking that they remove the politics out of this case and deal with murder, Mlungisi was killed, and it must not be a matter of what political party he was. He was a brother, a son before he was a fighter,” she said.
Speaking on behalf of the family Sbekezelo said they feel like justice has not been done.
“We were told that NPA was not going to prosecute, one of the reasons stated was that the shooting was a mistake”.
The memorandum was delivered and accepted by an NPA representative Sunill Prithpal who promised that they will get back to the students within a few days.
