Durban – Normal operations will commence at the Walter Sisulu University (WSU) on Thursday, after management and students reached an agreement at a meeting on Wednesday.

In a statement, university spokesperson Thando Cezula on Wednesday said with the exception of “some unwarranted disruptions”, the Institutional Management Committee (IMC) had worked toward finding solutions through student concerns.

Cezula said the IMC would maintain the 0% increase for 2016 students. He added the issue of historical debt would be referred to President Jacob Zuma.

“The president had also announced in his statement that a presidential task team will consider a package of issues including, among others, the historical debt referred to as ‘black debt’.”

However, Cezula added the minimum initial payment would still be applicable to 2016 students.

He added that the IMC had further resolved that all other campus-specific issues will be addressed through the normal campus management processes.
