Students removed from TUT, says movement

08 March 2016, 08:22 Kaveel Singh, News24

Durban – The forced removal of students at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) late on Monday night was unacceptable, an Outsourcing Must Fall movement official has said.

Spokesperson Vusi Mahlangu on Monday told News24 that students were being forcibly removed by armed security.

“It is absolute chaos. There has been damage to property and it is quite frankly a bad situation at the moment. We condemn the attacking of students in the middle of the night and call the closing of the campus by management childish. They always resort to closing the campus,” said Mahlangu.

The university earlier on Monday announced it would close down its Soshanguve campuses following a spate of protests.

University spokesperson, Willa de Ruyter, had previously said that despite discussions between management, the Central Student Representative Council (CSRC), Local Student Representative Council (LSRC) and the agreements reached, as well as an interdict that was still in force, a small group of people continued to disrupt activities at the Soshanguve campuses.

The students have been protesting and demanding that university management resolve the issue of financial exclusion among other issues.
