On the evening of Friday, 16 May, emissaries from the Students' Representative Council (SRC) and house committees, together with staff from Campus Protection Services, took to the streets of UCT to hand-deliver wads of crime-awareness pamphlets to residences.
Firstly, the pamphlet alerts students to the increase in robberies on the university's fringes. It also, and very specifically, urges students to walk in groups at night, part of a Safe Walk initiative the SRC hopes to introduce.
"We want to instil that mentality of always moving in groups," says Faith Chirinda, who holds the SRC's health, safety and security portfolio. In the picture, Tugwell Hall's Jessica von Berg and Susan Tissiman receive pamphlets from Ellen Petuane of CPS and fellow Tugwell resident Thandekile Dhladhla.
