Johannesburg - The University of Johannesburg suspended lectures on Monday following consultations with the Student Representative Council (SRC).

”This decision follows consultations between UJ management and the SRC on October 25. This allows for the SRC to consult and provide leadership to students on relevant matters, after which management and student leadership will issue a joint statement on the way forward,” the institution said.

Lectures and exams at the university would be suspended on Monday and Tuesday.

The institution held SRC elections last Wednesday. They joined Witwatersrand University’s #FeesMustFall march to ANC headquarters, Luthuli House on Thursday.

Most campuses had decided to continue with protests, despite an announcement by President Jacob Zuma to put a moratorium on 2016 fee hikes.

The students argued that only one of their several demands was achieved following a march to the Union Buildings on Friday.

They further demanded free education for all, and that universities stop the outsourcing of staff and services.
