The University of the Free State (UFS) offers its deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased student who was killed at the Durban University of Technology (DUT) during a protest action on the Steve Biko Campus on 5 February 2019.

The UFS condemns the use of firearms and undue force against protesting students.

 The university’s executive management supports the plight of students at institutions of higher education around the country, encouraging the use of engagement and dialogue to resolve issues between students and university leadership at all times. We hope that these issues can be resolved amicably and to the benefit of all higher education institutions, as well as to the benefit of the country.
