The students of Thekwini TVET College, Springfield Campus, KwaZulu-Natal, urgently request that their campus be relocated to a safe and secure new location. We call on the Department of Higher Education and Technology (DHET) Minister Blade Nzimande to engage with the management of Thekwini College to initiate the process of relocation.
The entry-road leading to the campus has become a hazardous dumping ground and extension of the neighbouring landfill site. The municipality and law enforcement have had little success in containing the dumping and violence has broken out in the area. It is no longer safe nor acceptable for students to access their campus given these circumstances.
