The Tshwane University of technology has suspended exams for the rest of the year at its Soshanguve campuses following violent protest action that saw several disruptions to exams last week.
The Gencor Hall, where students sit for exams, was torched at the weekend. Two vehicles were also set alight and fist fights exchanged between students and campus security.
Last week riot police engaged in running battles with protesting students and fired rubber bullets. TUT spokesperson Willa de Ruyter said management had taken a decision to postpone exams indefinitely.
“Students have been requested to vacate these two campuses for their own safety by no later than 17:00 today, 23 November 2015. TUT cannot accept any liability for the safety of any student who fails to adhere to the request to vacate these two campuses.”
