PSAs march to SANU, delivered petition against Vice Chancellor’s injustice on students leaders

Friday, 28th February, 2020

MANZINI:The Public Sector Associations (PSAs) marched and delivered a petition at the Southern African Nazarene University(SANU) calling upon Vice Chancellor Winnie Nhlengetfwa to stop harassing and denying students their right to education.

Sikelela Dlamini, the Secretary General of the Swaziland National Association of Teachers(SNAT) when unpacking the petition to the marchers said the conduct of the Vice Chancellor was not only undermining the right to education and future of the children but the laws of the country.

“Your conduct Madam Vice Chancellor is quickly making the University into becoming a huge skank and shall soon be the once glorious institution to its keens. Education is a public good and as such it must be accessible to all people, the bashing of students under your leadership and instruction is criminal and inhuman” said the SNAT Secretary General.

The march to the University comes after the Vice Chancellor refused to allow students leaders to register for the current semester, their sin was to lead a protest march against government’s failure to pay allowances in time. 

The SNAT Secretary General said the continued harassment of the students by the Vice Chancellor suggests that she has no regard for the future of the country as she undermined education.

“Before we are workers, we are members of the society and we are parents, why are our kids treated this way?” the Secretary General wondered.
