Students take peace talks back to Wits

JOHANNESBURG - Wits students hijacked the peace accord at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Braamfontein, demanding that Adam Habib leave.

Former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, Jay Naidoo and Father Graham Pugin are taking part in the meeting in a bid to launch dialogue for unity and coalition building as the fight for free education continues.

Pugin was shot in the face by police with a rubber bullet two weeks ago after he gave refugee to protesting students at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.

This comes after former Wits Student Representative Council president and #FeesMustFall leader, Mcebo Dlamini, was denied bail at the Johannesburg magistrate’s court on Wednesday.
