Please note the CHE and Universities South Africa statements on continued protest action at universities and disruption of academic activities

Date: Nov 17, 2015 | News


The Council on Higher Education (CHE) and Universities South Africa expressed deepening concern of the descent of student protests at some of our universities into wanton acts of violence, student intimidation and the destruction of university property.

Both the CHE and Universities South Africa issued statements (Monday, 16 November 2015) condemning these acts.

CHE’s statement strongly condemns this behaviour and points out that it is of view that there is no justification whatsoever for this behaviour as all leaders have shown a genuine commitment to engage, to hear, and address the concerns of protesters.

Universities South Africa’s statement highlighted that it respects the right of those who wish to protest lawfully but it cannot under any circumstances condone acts of violence and criminality.

Both the statements are attached for your convenience.
