MANZINI: Bheka Dlamini, the President of the William Pitcher College Students Representative Council(SRC) says no political party recruited them to sabotage the State.
This comes after the Times of Eswatini published a story suggesting that William Pitcher Students have been recruited to join a State sabotage by the Communist Party of Swaziland (CPS),the newspaper did not contact the students for a comment or publish evidence to substantiate the allegations levelled against them.
Speaking to this Swaziland News, Bheka Mabuza, the William Pitcher College SRC President said their call for academic freedom was to create a conducive environment for effective learning. 
“We can't allow baseless allegations to divide the unity amongst students. We are clear on our call for a democratic eSwatini because our academic freedom is certain there”,,he said.
Students across the country’s institutions of higher learning engaged in a series of class boycotts demanding allowances, better learning conditions and democratic reforms.
Pius Vilakati, Spokesperson of  Communist Party of Swaziland(CPS)said students shouldn't be scared of  being written in newspapers  since they were members of the community before they were students.
“It is important for people to understand that students have the right to take part in fighting for their freedom. They should not be taken as voiceless people to be kept on a leash as the regime intends to do",said the CPS Spokesperson.
