Black Students at a South African University Go On Strike

Black students at the University of Limpopo in northeastern South Africa called a strike claiming that they have been unfairly treated by the university’s administration. A spokesman for the Pan Africanist Student Movement of Azania claims that white students at the university were housed in residence halls that were far superior than the accommodations offered to black students. He claimed that the residence halls in which many black students are housed are dilapidated and in need of major repairs.

The student group also said they were angered by recent fee increases at the university.
