PORT ELIZABETH - Classes at Nelson Mandela University (NMU) were suspended on Monday after protest action by aggrieved students who were up in arms over safety concerns on campuses.
NMU spokesperson Zandile Mbabela said engagement with protesting students, the SRC and university management was underway.
This after students blocked entrances to the north and south campuses earlier on Monday morning.
Mbabela said a memo to staff and students to use alternative learning platforms was also issued.
“Subsequently, the situation remains calm as student protesters begin to disperse, following the serving and reading of a court interdict.”
