Durban - The vice-chancellor of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Albert van Jaarsveld, said on Tuesday that the students responsible for violence and damage at the Westville campus would be dealt with harshly.
“A full investigation into the acts of misconduct and violence is under way. Video footage and photographs taken will form part of the investigation. All perpetrators will face the full might of the university’s disciplinary codes and, where necessary, the law.
The costs had not been finalised, as insurance assessors had just carried out an assessment.
Van Jaarsveld said they were engaging with bodies representing the students internally, as well as with external organisations at provincial level.
There remained a strong police and private security presence at the Westville campus on Tuesday.
