JOHANNESBURG - The Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) has blamed student representative council (SRC) leaders from its Pretoria campus for orchestrating disruptions at the institution.

Lectures were suspended at four of the university's campuses yesterday following reports of intimidation on non-protesting students and academics.

Management says classes have resumed with no disruptions this morning.

Spokesperson Willa de Ruyter says protesting students who contravened the court order will be suspended.

"The decision was taken to suspend members of the Pretoria campus and other local SRC members found to be disrupting academic activities."
