Wits University ready to begin talks with protesting students


Wits University management is prepared to engage with protesting students to address their concerns over residence issues.

After barricading the university’s Empire Road entrance, students handed over a memorandum stating their grievances.

Wit’s University’s Shirona Patel says that the university is aware of the problems students listed in the memorandum and are looking for possible solutions, EWN reports.

Student Representative Council Kefentse Mkhari says that issues raised are not new, but that the university has pushed them aside.
