Awande Ngcobo started this petition to The Res Managers

Ever since we have arrived at the university we have been reporting maintenance problems, but no one has been attending them the assistants report do follow ups report again, but nothing. The ceiling in some of the rooms are literally black, there are no bathroom doors, the showers have no doors there is literally no privacy in the bathrooms. The walls in other rooms have unsettling stains, windows are not closing well. Security is only at the main gates and anyone and everyone enters our houses as the please. Loss of electronic gadgets have become an everyday thing. People knock on our doors in the late ours of midnight selling or advertising products. The first years are the most naive, still new to the life of university they need stable security, good healthy bathrooms just like in the houses of the second level students and higher. We really do not get why and how first years are not taken seriously and have their needs catered to as well. Don't they pay res fees as well? Aren't they human enough to be also protected. In most nights in the ladies houses when they take showers in the very same bathrooms that have no doors, they find guys/men roaming around those bathrooms, why aren't they told not to use the ladies bathrooms?. There have been cases of windows being broken and personal belongings taken but no one has attended to them. First years should be given suitable rooms as well, rooms that will make them feel safe, we sleep with one eye open because we don't know who will knock on our doors at night let alone break in and molest us. Why is there a department of housing if it doesn't do what the department of housing should do? Why are people getting paid for " taking care of the first year residences" while they are not. Aren't we supposed to feel at home away from home? 

Please help us get the attention and safety we deserve, help get our compliants heard too. I swear that the Nkandla residences maintenance issues are reported today and attended to that very same day or latest the next day. Why isn't that applied to first years too?
