People Against Suppression, Suffering, Oppression and Poverty (PASSOP) has raised its concerns after the University of the Western Cape dismissed nearly 50 foreign students who allegedly do not have valid study permits.
PASSOP says that nine of the students were Zimbabweans who were still waiting for their papers to be processed by the Department of Home Affairs under the Zimbabwe Dispensation Project.
PASSOP spokesperson, Langton Miriyoga, says that they will meet with the dismissed students and the Student Representative Council on the matter ‘as soon as possible’. Miriyoga added that they PASSOP is also going to approach legal experts on immigration matters.
