The Economic Freedom Fighters Student Command at DUT marched to Durban City Hall in support of the #justiceformlungisi movement.

The march started from Curries Fountain Sports Ground where students gathered to start marching. The aim of this march was to deliver a memorandum to the National Prosecutor Authority demanding justice for the late Mlungisi Madonsela.

Mlungisi was shot and killed in February this year during a student’s protest, a private security guard was accused for the murder but was never charged. The memorandum submitted by the EFFSC demanded that the accused should be detained for the crime.

“The memorandum will be handed to the NPA and Acting Mayor demanding that the accused be detained for Mlungisi’s death and ensure that he gets the justice he deserves,” said Deputy Chairperson of EFFSC, Nokuthula Ntantiso.

The students pleaded with the authorities to put politics aside and to focus on the evidence of the case. They believe that the reason the accused is not charged is due to the fact that Mlungisi was an EFF member.

His sister Sbekezelo Makhanya was also there to support her late brother, “I am here to fight for my brother to get justice. Mlu was a brother and a son before he was a fighter, the NPA should treat the case like other cases and charge the accused.”

The memorandum was delivered and accepted by Sunill Prithpal an NPA representative, who promised that they would get back to the students within a few days. The students demanded that they come back with a decision in 7 working days.
