Durban – Durban University of Technology (DUT) students and others, led by the Economic Freedom Fighters Student Command, are expected to march to the city’s town hall on Monday to “demand justice” for slain student Mlungisi Madonsela.
August 5 marks six months since DUT student Madonsela was shot during an altercation with security guards contracted to the institution. He later died in hospital.
“We will be marching from Currie’s Fountain and when we reach city hall we will hand over a memorandum of demands to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and provincial commissioner of police,” Sandiso Buthelezi, the convenor of the march, told African News Agency (ANA) on Sunday evening.
“We want justice for our students and we want justice for Mlungisi Madonsela. The NPA has said they are not going to prosecute anyone because they are short of evidence.
“We formed a committee a long time ago that decided we would fight for justice for Mlungisi, which is why we convened the march. All of those involved in the killing must take responsibility,” said Buthelezi.
