LSC Elections: Adhoc fears erased

ADHOC

ABOVE: Members of the Group Adhoc 10 promised to work hard to make law students’ academic lives better.

Adhoc 10 won six of the 13 seats in the Law Student’s Council elections that were held on Thursday.

According to Nkululeko Nkosi, the group were pleased with the results even though not all of their members were voted into the council.

Earlier this week Nkosi, whose group has received support from individual Progressive Youth Alliance (PYA) members, complained about another of the groups that was also running for office, The Bar.

Nkosi said no one from The Bar was elected into the Council and he was confident that they would work well with the people that have been elected: “We have a good relationship with everyone who was elected in so we work well together.”

He accused The Bar, some of whose members are also Project W members, of unethical campaigning and receiving help from some SRC members with their campaign. Nkosi  specifically referred to Project W’s Jamie Mighti who is a member of the SRC.

Project W won seven of the 15 seats in the SRC elections last year, ending years of the PYA’s majority dominance in the SRC.  Mighti accused Nkosi of being a PYA affiliate who just wanted to tarnish his reputation.

1) SIMEON ADEBOLA JO
2) ANELE NZIMANDE
3) THATO MAHAPA
4) BLAISE KOETSI
