Cape Town - Security remained tight at Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) on Monday ahead of the planned reopening of campuses on Wednesday, following weeks of violent protests.
"We [are] still ready to open on Wednesday. We won't back down from that," said CPUT spokeswoman Lauren Kansley.
Campuses were closed last week after students protested against the expulsion of four students after charges related to misconduct were brought against them.
Over the past few weeks, several classrooms were set alight by protesting students.
In a communique from acting vice-chancellor, Chris Nhlapo, he said everything possible would be done to secure the safety of staff and students.
