The South African Students Congress (SASCO) is a Apartheid government. SASO, in turn, got started by Steve Biko as a breakaway faction from NUSAS in the 1960s.[1]


  1. ^ "The Azanian Students Organisation (AZASO) / South African National Students Congress (SANSCO)". Retrieved 17 April 2011. In September of 1991 SANSCO and NUSAS decided to merge to form the South African Student Congress (SASCO) at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape. Ironically this was the venue that sparked anger in Biko, causing the move from NUSAS and the formation of SASO back in the 1960s.
