Classes indefinitely suspended at TUT Soshanguve

PRETORIA - Teaching and learning have been suspended indefinitely at the Tshwane University of Technology Soshanguve campus.

Student protests erupted last month after the death of student Katlego Monareng, allegedly at the hands of police. 

The Tshwane University of Technology has beefed up its security in response to the protests.

Students have vowed to get justice for the slain student in the form of a bursary in his honour and have demanded TUT build a house for his family.

TUT spokesperson Willa de Ruyter said the university will continue to engage with student leaders.

"We heard their demands and made decisions as far as they are concerned," said De Ruyter.

"We provided feedback and yet this doesn’t come to rest. We are investigating what’s behind that.”
A court interdict doesn’t seem to have doused the anger of students as vandalism continues.

Ten students have been served with suspension letters for their role in the violence.
Investigations into whether police are responsible for Monareng’s death are still ongoing.

Students have been advised to move out of their residences until lectures resume.
