Johannesburg - Classes were suspended at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) on Tuesday following a student protest, the university said.
“Groups of students started protesting this morning at the TUT main campus. Very early in the morning a bus was burned down,” spokeswoman Willa de Ruyter said.
“All academic activities have been suspended for the day.”
She could not provide further details about the bus.
De Ruyter said the protest was related to National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) payments. She could not immediately confirm claims that first-year students' funding applications had been rejected.
