On Wednesday (October 26 2016), a day when a student march to parliament ended in violent mayhem after some of the students and police clashed, these University of Stellenbosch students stood on a mountain and prayed life into their campus and town below. The university, about 50km away from troubled campuses in Cape Town has been relatively free of violence and disruptions in the ongoing student action demanding “free decolonised education”. Stellenbosch Christian student leaders shared the following prayer requests with Gateway News volunteer reporter Libby Norton: 1. Unity (in the Body and leadership) 2. God’s will to be done on campus. 3. Peace over the campuses.
