No Covid-19 vaccine so DUT students spend the night on the pavement


Zoleka Ndlovu from KwaNongoma, told TimesLIVE: “We arrived yesterday [Tuesday] morning at the housing department, but it was closed so we couldn’t get help. We found a place to sleep, but there were too many of us, so we all decided to sleep here because it didn’t feel right for a few to sleep outside while the rest of us are comfortable there.

“The university wants us to vaccinate before we are allocated residences even though the president said that should be a personal decision. We have our reasons, so for DUT to force us to vaccinate, because they are essentially forcing us, is not right.”

Aphelele Ndabazandile, from Matatiele in the Eastern Cape, echoed these sentiments, saying they are forced to choose between their education or the vaccine.
