ANC Bokone Bophirima on NWU
25/02/2015

The ANC in Bokone Bophirima is disturbed by the violence and destruction of property that took place at the North West University campus of Mahikeng on Wednesday.

While we understand that the students might have issues that frustrate them and legitimate demands such as calls for transformation and inclusion of all, we encourage them to follow the available channels to raise those concerns instead of resorting to anarchy and violence. The ANC further calls on security personnel to desist from using any type of force than can result in injuries and loss of life.

Destroying property will unfortunately disadvantage students themselves and it's ultimately their own education that suffers because of lack of resources. North West University students who value their education should alienate anyone who seeks to use their legitimate demands to further their own narrow political goals.

The ANC notes with concern the trend of destruction of property in previously disadvantaged institutions of higher learning, an act that is reversing the gains this democratic government has made in providing quality education for all. We recognize that the imbalances of the past have put the country's higher education institutions where they currently are wherein predominantly white institutions still enjoy the benefits of being well resourced, while traditionally black universities are struggling to catch up. We call on government to intensify efforts to improve the situation.

As the ANC we are confident in the intervention made by Minister of Finance Pravin Gordhan in his Budget Speech yesterday that R16-billion has been made available to assist higher education institutions. We believe this will go a long way in alleviating the challenges faced by these institutions.

The ANC in Bokone Bophirima supports the North West University management's decision to close the Mahikeng campus for some time so that calm can be restored. In the same breath, we also call upon the university management to work with speed towards reopening the campus in order to avoid loss of time for studies.

The ANC is pleased that the MEC of community safety Gaoage Molapisi is today visiting the NWU Mahikeng campus to attend to the matter and we encourage all our relevant deployees in government to do their best to assist the university and the students to reach an amicable solution.
