CAPE TOWN – All Cape Peninsula Univerity of Technology (CPUT) campuses will reopen on Wednesday.

All campuses were shut this week following a violent protest at a residence near the Cape Town campus.

Demonstrators were unhappy with the suspension of four students.

CPUT spokesperson Lauren Kansley said: “All CPUT campuses will reopen on Wednesday the 18th of October. The break will allow management to continue to engage with all university stakeholders, including student leaders and finally bring an end to this impasse.”

Four students were handed a 12-month suspended expulsion verdictafter they were found guilty of disrespecting management and rendering the decision making of administrators ineffective.

They were suspended after charges relating to misconduct were brought against them at the end of August.

Disciplinary proceedings against the four students stemmed from their efforts to address the lack of sufficient student accommodation on campus.
