“The call from students was a fair and a simple one and it needed no security but constructive engagements. As the organization we will continue on engaging all relevant stakeholders with regards to the transformation of all departments including the sports department. We will instruct all our deployees in the SRC to attend the MANCO on the 14-March-2018 and raise all these issues.”
