    Bsc mechanical engineering at Wits University? Get your facts right before rushing to print. So u think at UZ where he became SRC president he was doing A’levels? Or Access to Engineering? Lol! A brilliant student leader, easy going fellow. May his soul rest in peace!

      Yes PRC completed his degree at Wits as he was expelled from UZ in 1992 and went on to complete his Mechanical Engineering Degree @ Wits. The paper is correct 100% on this one.
