UDM YOUTH VANGUARD

MEDIA RELEASE

RESPONSE TO COSAS FOR TOWNSHIP EXAM POSTPONEMENT

STATEMENT ISSUED BY LUZUKO LUWACA as UDMYV SECRETARY GENERAL

It is a sign of irresponsibility on the side of the Congress of South African Students to call for postponement of examinations in the Townships. It is surprising that Maile and his fellow leaders forget so easily when the student movement fought against separatist apartheid education and called for a common and single education system.

It is high time that COSAS stopped playing with the emotions of the students and stop making promises that will be detrimental to our studentís future and the Nation at large.

We believe that with dedicated teachers and committed students, lost time can be recovered, rather than calling for a postponement of these examinations.

We call upon all students and teachers to dedicate themselves to their work and use every available minute to its fullest.

The UDM Youth believes that with discipline and a culture of learning, South Africa can be a world class nation through world class education.
