On Thursday 2 June SASCO and ANC members hurled stones at and attacked DASO members at the launch of DASO’s “My Safe Campus” initiative at PE College. The desperation of the ANC, which sees that the DA can win Nelson Mandela Bay, is now manifesting in violence and assault.
Having received written permission from Campus Management to hold the event, DASO members found the front gates padlocked upon arrival and were refused entry. We were then confronted by aggressive SASCO and ANC members who proceeded to assault us and throw stones at our vehicles.
Having won 75% of the iQhayiya campus seats at this year’s SRC election, it is clear that a desperate SASCO have now themselves resorted to acts of crime. Just like the DA can win Nelson Mandela Bay in this year’s Local Government Election, the ANC can see the writing is on the wall as we win on campuses across South Africa.
SASCO placed the students of PE College at greater risk by engaging in these acts of criminal violence and by preventing DASO from launching “My Safe Campus”. It is ironic that at the launch of a safety initiative, the ANC and SASCO chose violence instead.
DASO is not deterred by SASCO’s criminal acts and will forge ahead with the launch of this initiative.
