NHLANGANO: Students here at Ngwane Teachers College have on Friday picketed over poor services in the college.
The students are demanding hot water and a refund for services which the college failed to provide.
Speaking to this Swaziland News on Friday, Colani Maseko the President of the Swaziland National Union of Students (SNUS) said he was impressed by the resilience that was demonstrated by the students at the college.
"For a very long time, the students of that college have been oppressed and its inspiring to see them finally standing up for their academic right. We will pay a visit at Ngwane collectively as students in Swaziland because when united as students nothing can stop us. Our issues as students must be beyond the issue of allowances, refunds, poor wifi connection. We must go further and be involved practically in democratizing the country", said the SNUS President.
Sabelo Khumalo, the Dean of Students Affairs at the college had not responded to our questionnaire at the time of compiling this report.
Students across the country's colleges and universities are intensifying the calls for democratic reforms through their union, SNUS.
They are removing King Mswati's pictures from the walls of their campuses since they no longer recognized him as a head of state adding that he destroyed the education system by looting public funds.
