Alungile Piyose, third year student, Diploma in Management Accounting
“It will be my first time casting a vote, I believe it is time for change. These elections might just be the change DUT needs.”
Siyanda Mlambo, second year student, Diploma in Information Technology
“I will be voting for an organisation that will be stress-free to follow back home. It will be easier to grow into the organisation and transform it.”
Buyisiwe Mgwaba, third year student, Diploma in Operations
“I am still thinking about it, I last voted in 2021 which was my first year at DUT. I think the ruling party should take students more seriously, answer to enquiries on the group and ease down on the drinks.
Samkelo Nxumalo, first year student, Diploma in Geomatics
“I am not familiar with the organisations; I am not sure who to vote for because I have never had any difficulties, I needed assistance with from the organisations. Though I have heard good things about the ruling party.”
Sibabalwa Stalato, second year, National Diploma in Fashion Design
“I have never voted before; I am looking forward to casting my first vote. I would like to see improvement on the strikes and ensure they don’t affect the students and stop vandalising the school.”
Nolwazi Bhengu, third year student, Diploma in Operations
“I will not vote for any organisation. I don’t see a reason to vote. If they were to deliver on the changes they promise us, maybe than I would consider voting.”
