Finweek English Edition - - THE WEEK -

Twit­ter has ar­guably been the best provider of in­for­ma­tion on the protests at univer­sity cam­puses in re­cent weeks. Vi­o­lence marred protests at the Univer­sity of the Western Cape on 11 Novem­ber and raised ques­tions about the mo­tives of protestors, with crit­ics say­ing it is no longer about valid stu­dent con­cerns. Most wor­ry­ing, how­ever, is the im­pact on stu­dents. As stu­dent No­sisa Bom­vana said on Twit­ter: “Writ­ing ex­ams in Jan­uary will de­lay my grad­u­a­tion, de­lay my com­mu­nity ser­vice train­ing and de­lay my life ac­tu­ally.”
