“It is not something that was not expected that we were going to win the elections‚ but nonetheless we are very happy‚ and we want to say to students we are still committed.
“We are going to make sure that we achieve and we fulfil all of our promises so that students can get whatever it is that they want.”

“We are going to make sure students are in the front and Sasco must [will] lead them‚” he said.
