The University of Western Cape (UWC) is grieving the loss of Kamva Dasi, a third-year accounting student, who was tragically shot and killed in Belhar last Saturday.

According to reports, Dasi and five other students had withdrawn money from a bank before the incident occurred. As a result, the police have suggested that it was an armed robbery. However, Dasi’s family has refuted this claim, stating that their son and his friends were visiting a friend when the robbers entered the property. Reports suggest that Dasi was shot as he and the others fled.

The police are currently investigating the case, and the suspects are yet to be identified. Meanwhile, Dasi’s family is making arrangements for his funeral, which they intend to hold this weekend in Mthatha.

UWC’s deputy vice-chancellor for student development and support, Dr Matete Madiba, has expressed the university’s condolences to the Dasi family. The university has also offered psychological support to students affected by the tragedy.

In conclusion, the UWC community is mourning the loss of Kamva Dasi, and our thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time.
