TUT protests die down, situation remains tense
Students at the university's Pretoria and Ga-Rankuwa campuses have been protesting for over a week.
JOHANNESBURG - Protesting students have started dispersing from the Tshwane University of Technology, following more violent demonstrations earlier today.
Students at the university's Pretoria and Ga-Rankuwa campuses have been protesting for over a week, forcing management to suspend classes.
They have been demonstrating over National Students Financial Aid Scheme payments.
They are voicing their anger against the apparent lack of funding and the recent suspension of the Student Representative Council (SRC).
SRC secretary Sigfried Tivana says a meeting with university management has been arranged for later this afternoon.
"Management said they will meet us to begin the process of negotiations."
Tyres and other rubble were again set alight at the entrance of the main campus in Pretoria West earlier today.
A bus was torched during last week's protest.
