all - what is at stake for the students? - what tensions they face? I found this powerful piece from a WITS MBA student in the Daily Maverick very compelling and helpful. It is a short and worthwhile read.
We sit on a knife edge. So much is at stake today at WITS and at UCT and at the other Universities. By the time you read this email, things will be different.Tensions at WITS right now (Tuesday 9am) are very high. My niece (at UCT) wrote yesterday - 'I think prayer number 1 is for people to be blessed with humility to put their own agendas and frustrations aside in order to understand each other and prioritise peace and reconciliation'.
So a call for us to pray for peace, wisdom, humility and safety for all involved.
