Police clash with students at NMMU
SRC president Nicolas Nyati asked the management team why they were sitting in the shade, when struggling students were sitting in the sun. He asked them to move into the sun before he would address them.

When the officials did not do so, he said it was a further show of their lack of willingness to engage with students and he would not allow them to speak.
They are acting like immature little brats!

Eight arrested at NMMU protest
“The one place we have identified as the key strategic centre which is the hub of white monopoly capital is the Board Walk Centre close to NMMU Second Avenue Campus. Again, we urge all students and genuine symphathisers, especially HIGH SCHOOLS to come show solidarity with us on the ground for this call for free decolonised education.”

Hmm, lot more white monopoly capital at the new Baywest Mall - guess that's why they built it miles away from the university, too far for the buggers to walk :D

I wonder if these 'students' have any idea of what a hole they are digging for themselves. Actually no, I don't wonder. I know they have not the faintest.

Any employer worth working for will in future go over an applicant's background with a toothcomb if the applicant has a SA university degree, for anything other than the most menial jobs. Any hint of this type of behaviour and it is a no go. No employer wants that mentality in his business.

NMMU protesting students' case postponed to October

Port Elizabeth – Nine Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) students who were arrested following protests at the university made an appearance at the Port Elizabeth's Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

The nine, who made a brief appearance, are all facing charges of public violence and contravening the national road traffic act. One student also has an additional charge of interfering with police in the execution of their duties.

Before entering the courtroom the students were heard asking the court orderly to have the media removed from the court.

A request was put to Magistrate Shanjani Naidoo that photos of the accused not be taken.

Naidoo ruled that no photos or video recordings could be taken while court was in session.

The matter was then postponed until October 12 for further investigation. All nine students' bail conditions were extended.

Heroes' welcome

A large group of students had gathered outside the court building while waiting for proceedings to conclude. A strong police presence was also on hand.

The 100 plus group started dancing and cheering as the nine accused, branded the #NMMU9, and the rest of the student leaders came out of the court building.

The #NMMU9 were seen posing for selfies outside the court entrance with the police officers who had arrested them yesterday.

They then moved to the group of students where they were greeted with cheers.

Two buses then took the students back to NMMU's south campus.
