The African National Congress Youth League in KwaZulu-Natal congratulates its student ally, the South African Students’ Congress (SASCO) for securing a colossal win in a heavily contested SRC elections at Mangosuthu University of Technology yesterday.

SASCO received a whopping 2870 votes and won all eleven contested seats. Other parties such as the Economic Freedom Fighter’s EFFSC received just above 200 votes while the Democratic Alliance’s DASO received only 70 votes.

This landslide victory at MUT is yet another clear indication that the African National Congress youth arms still remain the trusted champions of young people’s interests. We are humbled by their unwavering support and the victory will certainly ensure that issues affecting students at MUT are dealt. We have no doubt that SASCO will continue leading campaigns of ensuring that education is accessible to all the students as espoused by the Freedom Charter,” said ANC Youth League Provincial Secretary, Cde Thanduxolo Sabela.

It is worth mentioning that the National Freedom Party’s NASMO only received 43 votes which is a clear vote of no confidence in parties which do not represent the interests of the majority of South Africans.
