Relentless pressure from students at the University of Stellenbosch has forced management to propose that Afrikaans - as the predominant medium of instruction - be scrapped.
CAPE TOWN - Stellenbosch University students calling for the scrapping of university fees are continuing with their sit-in protest.
They entered the JS Gericke Library with Occupy4FreeEducation and the SFMFDefianceCampaign banners.
The sit in started on Monday and was still on-going late into Wednesday evening.
On Wednesday evening there were still 14 students inside the library and has been peaceful.
Just last week another group of students disrupted the Cape Town leg of the public hearings on university fees.
They staged a demonstration and prevented UCT Vice-Chancellor Max Price from leaving the building.
Stellenbosch University&39;s Vice Chancellor made submissions at the hearings on why institutions need tuition fees.
On the FeesMustFall Stellenbosch 2.0 Facebook page, a statement was released very early Thursday morning.
The students state they are looking for an open, honest engagement about fees and free decolonised education.
