THE national and Eastern Cape wings of the ruling party put their weight behind the South African Students' Congress (Sasco) election campaign yesterday when ANC deputy secretary-general Jessie Duarte encouraged the students to take their campus back from the "sweetheart union".
Duarte was speaking at a Sasco rally at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University's south campus after the student party presented its manifesto ahead of the September 18 elections.
She encouraged the student organisation – whose election slogan is to put the R, for representation, back into Student Representative Council (SRC) – to instead put two Rs in its slogan, and add revolution to its campaign.
