Katlego Mnareng died last Thursday when chaos over vote-rigging ensued.

Students marched to Cele's office, eventually handing their memorandum to Deputy Minister Bonginkosi Mkongi.

The students have given the minister least five days to respond to their memorandum.  

The university says it’s appointed SNG Grant Thorton to conduct a forensic investigation into claims of election rigging at both Soshanguve and Ga-Rankuwa campus.

The probe is expected to be finalised at the end of September.
