Reinstate Alan Leonard as Wits Rugby Clubhouse Commercial Tenant
It is with great sadness that this petition goes out to the world.
On Tuesday 10 February the University Informed Alan Leonard (Uncle Al) that he has 6 days to vacate rugby clubhouse as a new university tenant had been appointed to replace him. Alan Leonard (Uncle Al) is the backbone of the Wits University Rugby Club. He has given many years of service, not only to the rugby club but also to any person or organisation on Wits campus that requires assistance.
Uncle Al has served Witsies, past and present, with so much passion and spirit; yet the University is prepared to turn their back upon him. They are prepared to evict him and take away his only form of income on 6 days’ notice.
As the Wits University Rugby Committee, Past and Present Students, Wits Clubmen and everyone else who has ever experienced Jomo's for what Alan Leonard made it;
We demand that you reinstate our Uncle Al as the Wits University Rugby clubhouse tenant.
