Democracy in action with SRC's C³

02 March 2012 | Story by Newsroom

studentsC'ing red: Mike Ramothwala, SRC vice-president external, has a heart to heart with students in the Kramer Building.

Comment, criticise and compliment.

These are the three C's steering the Students' Representative Council (SRC)'s C³ campaign, launched on 28 February when SRC members struck up off-the-cuff conversations with startled students in the Kramer building. By going grassroots, the SRC is hoping to hear students' thoughts on what's good, what's not and what's missing from UCT student leadership.

The week-long campaign will see the red-clad SRC visit a campus during lunch-time and a residence at supper-time to get the lay of the land.

"We need to be more visible, which is the main complaint people have all the time about the SRC," says Nkateko Mnisi, media and communications co-ordinator.

And they are not scared of less-than-flattering feedback, either.

"If we get negative feedback, we'll know where the problem is exactly," Mnisi explains. "I mean, if you're only getting good feedback, how do you improve?"
