The South African Students Congress (SASCO) says it has learnt with disappointment and anger of the actions by the Vice Chancellor and Exco Management of the University of South Africa (UNISA), who have decided “to not only violate labour relations act but went as far as unfairly dismissing workers on the basis of their affiliation.”
SASCO President Bamanye Matiwane said they have long warned that a wolf can never hide in a sheepskin forever. “Professor Nkambule and her management have exposed our long-held views about her historic reactionary posture within the higher education sector over the years.”
Bamanye added that the tactics to silence workers and students through suspension and expulsion’s are nothing new to them. “She must be aware that she joins a long list of intolerant incompetent fellows who are presiding over these public institutions who know no dialogue but Apartheid tactics. We are well aware of her planned attack on our Student Representative Councils and Branch Leaders because they speak against such injustices.”
Meanwhile, NEHAWU said it is angered and highly disappointed by the decision of the Vice-Chancellor and UNISA management to terminate unlawfully the employment of contract of their shop stewards.
