Classes resume at TUT
TUT students protested over a lack of funds in the National Students Financial Aid Scheme.
JOHANNESBURG - Academic operations have resumed at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) after the institution was forced to close due to violent protests.
At least 18 cars belonging to the university were torched two weeks ago allegedly by students.
TUT students have been demonstrating over lack of funds in the National Students Financial Aid Scheme.
The university's Willa de Ruyter says, "The university has made a proposal to the council which has also said that it will make R46 million available for student loans to fund 2,500 students in competing their studies."
