Johannesburg - The University of Johannesburg on Sunday poured cold water on rumours that it had cancelled all student debt.

Twitter was abuzz with students celebrating that their financial statements reflected an amount of R0.00 was due.

University spokesperson Kaamini Reddy told News24 that they were investigating the claims after they surfaced on social media.

It was not the case that student debt had been cancelled, she said

"We are not sure whether it is a hoax, but from the IT point we are looking at it. We don't have conclusive results, but we are probing it on all levels on our end," she said.
