IFPYB Deeply Concerned About Safety of Students in KZN

Mar 16, 2023 | Press Releases

The Inkatha Freedom Party Youth Brigade (IFPYB) is deeply concerned about the safety of students on and around university campuses and residences in KwaZulu-Natal.

This follows recent violent attacks at Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) and the University of Zululand. Tragically, a former student leader was shot and killed at MUT last week, while armed gunmen robbed students in their residences at the University of Zululand on the evening of 13 March, with several students allegedly being assaulted during the robbery.

Students should not have to live in fear as they attempt to build a better future at our institutions of higher learning. MUT and the University of Zululand should bring us into their confidence and provide assurances that students in and off campus are safe – day and night.

As the IFPYB, we therefore call upon the SAPS to urgently investigate these serious crimes and bring the perpetrators to justice. Further, we call upon the management of MUT and the University of Zululand to conduct urgent assessment of their existing security measures, to identify gaps, and to strengthen the protection provided to students on campus and at their residences.
