*Ability Sit in at UCT*
A sit in is currently underway at the university’s main administration building, Bremner, where differently abled bodies demonstrates against ableism at the university.
Multiple participants in the sit in share their stories and grievances and the memorandum is read out in the presence of the DVC, Loretta, with the issue of accessibility being prevalent in most cases of personal experience.
This is unfortunately not the first sit on the same issues at the university – only a few of the items on the previous memorandum have been addressed. There is just one 24hrs access computer for partially sighted people and Student Wellness is still understaffed amongst other issues.
Kanyisa Ntombini, the organiser behind the sit in, hopes to encourage those present to fill out forms and submit applications to the South African Human Rights Commission in an attempt to seek legal intervention through them.
