OPERATIONS resumed, under the watchful eye of SAPS, at Esayidi Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) College in Kokstad on Monday. This after students’ repeated and ongoing disruptions of operations since July 24.

The campus was previously closed following student protests that covered various issues.

Students demanded pending results to be released and protested against irregular distribution of schedule of particulars (SOP) forms, shortage of lecturers, resources and infrastructure, and lack of computer labs.

As a result of the protests, a security room was burnt down and three students were arrested.

Two students were released on warning and one was granted R500 bail.

Protesting students this week said that none of their demands have been resolved.

Chairperson of the Student Representative Council (SRC), Masimbonge Mkhatshane, confirmed that classes resumed this week and students are preparing to write trial exams on Monday.

“I am happy now that the protest is over because students have missed assessments, tests, and tuition,” said Mkhatshane.
