Mcebo Dlamini walks to PTA for jailed #FeesMustFall students
Dlamini embarked on his journey at 10 am and is expected to arrive in Pretoria later on Friday afternoon where he will deliver a letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa.
JOHANNESBURG - Student activist Mcebo Dlamini is on Friday walking from Johannesburg to the Union Buildings to highlight the plight of students who remain in jail for their role during the Fees Must Fall protests.
Dlamini embarked on his journey at 10 am and is expected to arrive in Pretoria later on Friday afternoon where he will deliver a letter to President Cyril Ramaphosa asking him to grant amnesty to all jailed student activists.
Dlamini, who is also facing criminal charges related to the protests, says they're being punished for demanding what is just.
“We are saying to the president; can he use political means to solve political problems. This damage to property that happened, happened under a political cloud, not of a criminal nature.”
