Police Minister Bheki Cele said this as several Cabinet ministers - including Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, Defence and Military Veterans Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and Women, Youth and persons with Disabilities Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane - met with student leaders on Thursday to engage on the ongoing student protests and gender-based violence.
Cele suggested the establishment of a body that would get all the universities together.
“We came up with a programme of engaging students representing all students from campuses," he said.
“I was just thinking, I don't know what kind of a structure we can build so that all universities continue to engage. Many of you came with proposals of solutions and we cannot come here and say that we can't take ideas from you.”
