Shingange responded to the points raised and said that students would have to be more “strategic” in their actions and called for an “agitation” of the system. He provided a few suggestions, such as shutting down highways and airports. He then said that the SRC would take the points raised by the floor to management. After this, the issue of SRC elections was discussed. Shingange highlighted the SRC’s rejection of the proposed e-voting system, saying the problem was that some students do not have the same resources as others and that the system does not take into account the fact that candidates might be able to put pressure on students to vote for them. When he opened the floor to engagement from students, no students came forward to engage further.

He closed the meeting by asking students to support the Tuks 24 who are set to appear in court on Friday 19 August.
