Pretoria - Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) has been hit by further disruptions as strike action saw all of the university's campuses shut down by protesting students early on Monday morning.
Messages by student leaders as far as Polokwane, Soshanguve, Ga-Rankuwa and the main campus in Pretoria West, were circulated on Whatsapp, with student leaders warning students not to attend classes.
Tyres were burnt and students huddled around the entrance singing struggle songs at the Ga-Rankuwa campus.
A student leader who refused to be named, for fear of victimisation, said the problem they were facing currently was that the university was refusing to give off-campus students meal allowances.
He said the university vice-chancellor and principal, Professor Lourens van Staden, had been given the powers to resolve this matter and there had been countless engagements to this effect.
