Pretoria - Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) management and the student representative council (SRC) have re-opened talks to resolve the ongoing protests at the university, the SRC said on Wednesday.
“The university has re-opened talks to discuss the issues tabled in the memorandum that was submitted to the office of Vice Chancellor and Principal last week,” secretary general Sigfried Tivana said in a statement.
“We are very happy that the Executive Management has realised that only dialogue can resolve the impasse we are all subjected 1/8to 3/8.”
He said TUT's students wanted to be in class and could not afford to lose more time demonstrating because of management's unavailability.
“This strike was not even supposed to take longer than two days but because we are dealing with academics that are not honest and open we have now wasted students' time,” Tivana said.
