According to an article on Netwerk24, the language lashing received by Free State University on Thursday at the high court in Bloemfontein, will be used as ammunition in cases against the other universities.

Lawyer Danie Rossouw, who represents AfriForum Jeug, stated that the constitutional court’s recent ruling in favor of Solidariteit’s case against the department of correctional services, will be worth gold in the planned case against Stellenbosch University.

Rossouw states that he believes Stellenbosch University to have a bigger responsibility towards Afrikaans students, because there are a much bigger group of Afrikaans speaking students in the Western Cape. He also mentions that he is disappointed that the University accepted the new language policy in June instead of waiting to hear Thursday’s ruling.
