Johannesburg - As many as 34 students from the University of Johannesburg (UJ) are in danger of being evicted after Nolwando Bomela, which provides private accommodation, lost its accreditation over alleged wrongdoing.
Affected students have received letters from Basil Mugwena, the UJ Director: Student Life and Governance at the Auckland Park campus, which say: "This memorandum serves to inform you that the University of Johannesburg has withdrawn accreditation that was granted to Nolwando Bomela for the year 2019 to 2023".
However, the university insists the landlord breached the rules and will no longer be allowed to accommodate students.
"Nolwando Bomela violated the terms and conditions of their accreditation, hence the withdrawal. You are hereby advised to start serving Nolwando Bomela with written notice to vacate the property no later than April 30, 2019," said the letter from the university dated 30 March.
The letter ends: "Please visit the Privately Owned Student Accommodation (POSA) office nearest to you and they will assist you with a list of available alternative accommodation."
