UJ believes small group is responsible for arson attack
The university will start making alternative arrangements for graduation and mid-year exams.
JOHANNESBURG - The University of Johannesburg (UJ) says it will start making alternative arrangements for graduation and mid-year exams after one of its main auditoriums was torched.
The 1,000-seater auditorium was set alight at the Kingsway Campus in the early hours of Monday morning.
Police are still searching for the culprits.
LISTEN: UJ fire investigation is underway.
UJ's deputy vice chancellor Mpho Letlape says they believe there's only a small group of people behind the arson attack.
"We will not allow this minuscule, violent minority to destroy the infrastructure necessary for us to continue to deliver on our academic programme."
CCTV footage will now be reviewed in an attempt to find the culprits and potential witnesses.
Graduation and some exams were supposed take place in the auditorium, but alternative arrangements are being made to ensure activities on campus continue as scheduled.
