UCT mass meeting: Students hoping for a resolution
Hundreds of students and staff have attended a mass meeting on Upper Campus today.
CAPE TOWN - Protesting University of Cape Town (UCT) students say they're hoping to come to a resolution with management today.
Protest leaders will be meeting with management and council at 4:00pm this afternoon.
Hundreds of students and staff attended a mass meeting on Upper Campus today.
Student protest leader Mlingani Matirane says management has not listened to their demands.
Matirane says one of the group's demands has been to have a TRC-like process with management, independent commissioners and suspended and interdicted students.
"The first thing that we asked for is that the first phase of the TRC specifically deals with interdict suspensions, expulsions and criminalisation to happen during that week as well."
He says they hope today's meeting will have a constructive outcome.
"We'll ask again for the exact same thing at today's meeting, hoping that this time we won't have to waste four more days."
Matirane says protests will not stop until the TRC process has taken place.
