MUT cannot concede to students’ demands

The Mangosuthu University of Technology says cannot concede to demands that would increase the historical debt of students, as this would cripple it financially.

The EFF Student Command-run SRC at the institution has vowed to sustain protests in a bid to force the university to clear all eligible students for registration, as well as grant funding and academic certificates to postgraduate students regardless of historical debt.

The students intensified their protests yesterday when they burnt tyres in front of the university’s main entrance and caused major traffic congestion by blockading the busy Mangosuthu Highway.
