OALY-LEAD notes with serious concern violence on campuses in South Africa as Student Representative Council election season gets underway in the country.
The attack on the leadership of the DA Youth and the DA Student Organisation in Polokwane, a Province in South Africa, shows a total high level of political intolerance and raises a concern about freedom of participation in a democratic South Africa.
We call on all students to respect freedom of choice and association and allow a space for free and fair elections to take place without any form of intimidation.
Young people in Africa should show understanding and maturity in safe-guarding the good principles of democratic processes.
Young people are the ones to reshape Africa as a continent that builds peace and political stability.
