It's not yet clear when TUT will reopen
The Tshwane University of Technology was forced to close on Saturday due to violent protests.
PRETORIA - The Tshwane University of Technology says it is still not clear when its campuses will officially open after they were forced to close on Saturday due to violent protests.
At least 18 cars belonging to the university were torched allegedly by protesting students on Friday night.
It is understood the cars were set alight at the Soshanguve and Ga-Rankuwa campuses.
Students have been protesting at the institution for about two weeks now over the lack of funds in the National Students Financial Aid Scheme.
On Saturday, residence students were ordered to vacate the institution for their own safety.
The university's Willa de Ruyter says, "The decision to close our campuses was reached in consultation with the chair of the joint university of technology. We will publish information regarding the reopening of the university on our website."
