Activist Sibusiso Mpendula, representing UCT Student Activists, came unprepared with no filing paper, and was told by Judge Elizabeth Baartman to go and see an attorney who would help him file the correct papers.

“In 2015, through our campaign #FeesMustFall, the university had insourced some of the workers. We have about 100 workers who haven’t been insourced and they still work through labour brokers.
“We as a voluntary organisation consisting of current and former students feel this is unlawful,” said Mpendula.
