Update from the Senior Executive Team (10:00)

- Wits University

The University remains calm this morning without incident.

A security and police presence remains on all campuses.

We have further taken the decision to ensure that dining halls remain open and that a limited bus service is provided, where possible. Cleaning services remain suspended.

Many other university campuses have also experienced disruptions or closures across the country including the University of Cape Town, the University of Pretoria, the Durban University of Technology, Stellenbosch University, North West University’s Mahikeng campus, Unisa, the Tshwane University of Technology, the University of Fort Hare, the University of KwaZulu-Natal and the Sefako Makgato University of Health Sciences.

Minor disruptions were experienced and violence was reported at the University of the North West, University of Johannesburg and the Vaal University of Technology.

A further update will follow later today.
