Wits ready to speak to disgruntled students

Wits University.

NATIONAL NEWS - Management at Wits University says it’s ready to talk to students to address their concerns over accommodation issues at the institution.

On Thursday, a group of students handed a memorandum stipulating their grievances after barricading the university's Empire Road entrance.

They say the protests are as a result of management's disregard for their wellbeing.

Wits University's Shirona Patel says the university is cognisant of the concerns listed in the memorandum and they are considering solutions.

But the Student Representative Council (SRC) Kefentse Mkhari says these concerns are not new and the university has set them aside for far too long.
