AKA 400x267 - AKA supports Wits hunger strike students

Award-winning rapper AKA has donated R100 000 to the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) SRC Humanitarian Fund following ongoing protests at the institution. The beginning of the 2019 academic year saw students go on a hunger strike in protest over issues including accommodation and registration fees resulting from a bundle made by the student’s financial aid scheme, NSFAS.

AKA took to social media to share that he would make a substantial donation in support of the students. He also visited the university where he joined the protests.

Here’s a look at what went down.

I’ve been following the saga unfolding at WITS and I feel like something needs to be done for these kids. These are the very same people we ask for support from when we as public figures need something, yet our indifference and silence in times like these is deafening. I think we need to recognize that the government or the institutions will not have all the answers and that it’s up to us to HELP EACH OTHER … especially people in positions like mine. I hope this will make other celebrities, private citizens and leaders, STOP 🛑 and THINK 🤔 about what we can do to help these young people. This is not a political initiative, this is about demonstrating that WE are the only ones who can find solutions for our own problems. Whatever our political affiliation, let’s come together for the students … Get off your Instagram, give the hashtags a break ✋🏽and let’s actually DO SOMETHING. See you tomorrow Ⓜ️
