WSU under fire for its unhealthy toilet facilities
Taxi rank toilets are in much better conditions than those you will find at Walter Sisulu University, said Economic Freedom Fighters Student Command national president Peter Keetse.
Keetse was speaking at the university's Ibika campus on Tuesday.
He and the EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi are in the province visiting WSU campuses ahead of SRC elections that will take place on Thursday.
“You go to a bathroom here, there is not even a toilet paper, in an institution of higher learning. Even the door cannot close when you are inside, it cannot lock… there is no privacy,” he said.
He said students were tired of that and needed proper services.
“It cannot be that these toilets are worse than taxi rank toilets. When you get to the taxi rank toilets, it is clean, there is toilet paper and it can lock, but here it is a different story,” he said.
He said the time had come that Walter Sisulu University be treated like a university.
“We need change and EFFSC we bring that long overdue change,” he said.
Keetse said there were confident that the work that has been done by branches will amount to the votes that we are going to get on Thursday.
“It is in this very same university we had a programme called ‘walk in earlier this year’ where prospective students were assisted to gain access in the institutions of higher learning, irrespective of their having money or not… those are basic programmes that the EFFSC continue to champion,” he said.
He warned students to be very careful of who they vote for into office.
“We have seen across the country… there is a new wave that is looming there is a fresh wind of chance that is blowing in this country and that is being ushered in by young people in the form of students. The EFFSC victories that we see across the country are not just coming out, they come out because young people have taken a decision that we are not going to surrender our future to the hands of old people,” he said.
Keetse said, the reason they were visiting WSU campuses was to affirm and rubberstamp the victory that the EFFSC was going to get on Thursday...
