DEPUTY Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams yesterday called on students affiliated to the SA Students' Congress (Sasco) to honour former president Nelson Mandela by winning Wednesday's Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) Student Representative Council (SRC) elections.

Ndabeni-Abrahams addressed a packed City Hall auditorium ahead of the crucial SRC poll.

"Sasco has the responsibility to mobilise and improve the lives of students on campus," she said.
