Update: Disruption of University activities - 10:00

- Wits University

Senior Executive Team statement on protest violating court order.

A group of about 30 people have threatened students queuing outside the Fees Office. The Fees Office and all other offices on the Ground Floor have thus been temporarily shut. 

We have also been notified that some lectures in Senate House and in buildings on the Wits East Campus have been disrupted. The students were joined by some employees of shopkeepers in the Matrix Student Centre and the Matrix has now been closed. The group has now moved to the piazza outside the Great Hall, while some students have moved to the West Campus. 

The University‚Äôs management condemns this behaviour which is a direct violation of the court order obtained by the University and members of Campus Control have been deployed to stabilise the situation. 

We will keep you updated as to further developments. Please report any incidents to Campus Control in person or via telephone at (011) 717-4444 or (011) 717-6666. If required, medical assistance is available at Campus Health in the Matrix.
