Seasoned senior policeman Col Kobus Roelofse has for nearly a decade failed to get documents he needs for prosecution of a corruption case declassified. The ANC has not yet declared its view on the Treasury's economic discussion paper aimed at reigniting economic growth. Government ignored our objections during consultations and gave the go-ahead behind our backs, say some lobbyists. Blocking on-loan Brockie from playing against them was well within their rights, as agreed on with Maritzburg United.

The normal protests come in brief and seasonal cycles, are mostly limited to historically black campuses and the former polytechnics technikons, now merged and renamed universities of technology , and are generally not violent.

Jacob Zuma chose to mark the Day of Reconciliation by reaching out to protesting students and promising free higher education, an unsurprising but contentious move. By pure chance I happened to be on the UCT campus on 9 March , the day Chumani Maxwele decided to douse the statue of Cecil John Rhodes in excrement, kicking off a protest movement that called not only for the removal of the offensive statue but for a removal of the hostile organisational climate that many black students felt permeated UCT and other historically white universities HWUs. RMF was not the first to call for this at UCT — similar calls had been made for as long as I can remember, with organisational climate surveys, research projects and outbreaks of protest underlining the need for what we then called transformation — but things were different this time: firstly, a mere month to the day after the initial protest action the statue was removed. This concrete response, while limited, was nonetheless symbolic, and signalled a difference from previous responses, which were usually to appoint task teams to frame new policies, to investigate renaming a few venues, or to review systems and procedures to speed up recruitment and retention of black students and staff. Secondly, the movement spread like wildfire. Months later, fresh impetus came with the beginnings of FeesMustFall at Wits University, spreading beyond HWUs to historically black campuses and institutions, where long-standing protests about fees and resources became part of a national uprising. Interviews with 11 vice-chancellors, and his own views as a 12th, form the bulk of the data around which the analysis is constructed.
