Classes at the Tshwane University of Technology in the Soshanguve campuses are set to resume on Monday, 08 October 2018. The management closed the two campuses for two months due to safety concern in the area which were caused by a students protest to what they call SRC vote-rigging in the institution. The protest led to a death one student.
In a statement, TUT said “Ongoing violent protest action and damage to property that posed a serious risk to the safety of students and staff at these campuses left the University no choice but to suspend activities at these campuses in order to restore normality.
“Students may occupy residences from 7 October 2018 in order to prepare for the resumption of normal activities.”
The university announced that faculties will arrange catch-up programmes and tests with students and that year-end examinations for students at all TUT campuses, except the Soshanguve North and South campuses, will commence on 12 November 2018.
