Hundreds of delegates and guests attended the 21st anniversary celebrations of the South African Students Congress (SASCO) held on UKZN’s Westville campus on Saturday, September 8.
Among the gathering were UKZN’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Malegapuru Makgoba; Young Communist League Secretary, Buti Manamela; ANC Youth League’s Ronald Lamola and COSATU President, Sdumo Dlamini.
Makgoba officially welcomed keynote speakers and everyone in the large crowd to the celebrations.
President Jacob Zuma’s representative, Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba, reminded students that militancy was dangerous when there was no discipline. Discipline ensured that militant actions did not lead to ‘anarchy and to feeding into the root cause of counter revolution’.
Representatives from youth organisations spoke on different issues presently affecting the country and the youth in particular.
