South African tertiary institutions are being crippled by disruptive and destructive strikes spear headed by academically under achieving students occupying high posts in our SRC's.
These people stay for years in these institutions so they can enjoy many benefits including free fees, etc.
Why are people consistently failing on the one thing that got them in the institution being allowed to lead fellow students ?
In high schools we see bright kids excelling in their studies and sports but also head their Learners Representative Councils, what happens to this aspiring leaders when they arrive in institutions of Higher Learning ?
Lets call on the Department of Education to pass Legislation that will force tertiary institutions to set out clear and sensible criteria for students' eligibility in occupying seats in the SRC's.
We, the undersigned, call the Department of Higher Education to pass Legislation that will force tertiary institutions into setting out strict requirements for any students willing to join the SRC.
