How the #FeesMustFall struggle has worsened

Written by on 23rd Oct 2019

With widespread protests around the country and institutions brought to a standstill by #FeesMustFall, brave activists have stood in the front line and risked their lives just to be heard…

Four years since the beginning of the hashtag, the storm has not calmed as court battles are prevalent and students are still serving time for the movement. On top of a backlog of study fees, some now have criminal records.

On Monday’s Round Table Talk (RTT), the #YMornings team asked the questions:

  • Where is the movement right now?
  • Is it still active? Or do we still face a crisis in our institutions of higher learning?
  • Should students like Khan Cekeshe should be pardoned?
  • Has any REAL progress been made?

In conversation was:

  • DJ Ankletap
  • Adv. Brenda Madumise-Pajibo – Admitted and non-practicing advocate and businesswoman
  • Wandile Ngcaweni- Researcher and Co-author of “We are No Longer at Ease”
  • Naledi Gongxeka- #FeesMustFall activist and Khanya Cekeshe’s close friend
  • Manosa Nthunya- PHD Candidate in Literature at Wits and Book Critic
