Call by vice-chancellors for a meeting with the President of South Africa

The vice-chancellors of all 26 public universities are calling for an urgent meeting with the President of South Africa, to register their anger at the scourge of gender-based violence in the country and to push for a plan of action to respond decisively to this crisis.

The rape and murder of the University of Cape Town student, Uyinene Mrwetyana, and the murder of UWC student Jesse Hess are the latest cases among others, which have rallied the South African society together across constituencies, to declare in one voice that enough is enough.
