UCT could shut down until 2017 if protests continue, warns Max Price
The vice-chancellor has discussed the implications of continued disruptions on campus.
At a media briefing today, Price discussed the implications of continued disruptions on campus.
Academic activity is currently suspended at UCT following the escalation of demonstrations over the past two weeks.
Price says academic activity will resume on Monday.
But he does not yet have assurances that protesting students will not cause disruptions.
The vice-chancellor says even though they have lost two weeks, they will be able to complete the academic year if lectures resume next week.
Graduation ceremonies will however only be held next year.
The vice-chancellor warns if demonstrations continue for a month, they will not be able to complete the academic year and the institution may have to shut down until the new year.
