South African students continue to protest against racial inequality

Protests that began last week in at least seven South African Universities continue after the President has agreed to freeze tuition increases.

 

Wits University in Johannesburg along with the University of Cape Town and the University of Western Cape remain closed.

 

Student protesters said that the government has failed to answer some of their demands primarily on the issue of racial inequality. Students said that education must be free to the poor.

 

Protesters said that promises were made to their parents twenty years ago yet they are still feeling the the effects of apartheid and are demanding that the government “make good” on its word to the students by ensuring education is equal among black and white students.

 

Students are demanding the free education that they were promised in 1994.
