CAPE TOWN – The Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) says security will be heightened as it’s graduation ceremony gets underway at Bellville campus on Friday morning.
It’s been a stop-start week for the institution as students protested and clashed with police at CPUT’s Cape Town campus.
Protestors forced a shutdown at Mowbray campus and set several classes alight at the Cape Town campus.
The university’s Lauren Kansley says about 900 students are expected to graduate on Friday.
“Around 900 students will graduate at our traditional spring ceremony. The appropriate security measures are in place to ensure the campus is secure. We are ready to welcome students and their loved ones to campus.”
