Vice-Chancellors at all 26 universities have called for a meeting with President Cyril Ramaphosa to discuss the scourge of gender-based violence.

UCT film and media studies student Uyinene Mrwetyana, 19, was killed at a post office on the day she went missing - August 24.

UWC theology student Jesse Hess, 19, was killed along with her grandfather at their Parow home on Friday.

"All 26 Vice-Chancellors will engage the Presidency by Friday the 13th of September, with the view of registering our anger and developing a plan of action for addressing the scourge at the universities," Universities South Africa spokesperson Mateboho Green explained.

"Our people are angry – angry about the violent abuse of women that happens daily, angry about not being heard, angry about the irrational violence that robs people of their lives, angry about the lawlessness in our country, angry about the wanton destruction of infrastructure and angry about the empty promises and lack of political leadership on these matters," said Green.
