Durban - The Walter Sisulu University, Buffalo City Campus will resume normal operations after a meeting between management and students, the university has said.

In a statement WSU spokesperson Thando Cezula on Wednesday said a meeting of the campus management committee, attended by the interim vice-chancellor and principal and relevant members of the institutional management committee, was held with the SRC "in yet another attempt to resolve the outstanding matters".

Cezula said the SRC would report back to their constituency on the outcomes of the meeting on Wednesday.

"The meeting of management and SRC held yesterday has resolved that all members of staff for Buffalo City Campus should report back and resume with their duties on Wednesday, November 4.

"An announcement regarding the actual commencing of lectures will however be made by the office of the Buffalo City Campus rector after the SRC report-back meeting.

“The office of the registrar will also be communicating, no later than Thursday, November 5, the re-arrangements the institution will make with regard to the university timetable for the final year examinations."

Cezula said the situation at the Buffalo City Campus had not normalised "despite the resolution of various institutional issues" that was communicated in WSU's memorandum.

"The Buffalo City Campus management committee had continued engagements with the SRC to find solutions to the outstanding campus-specific issues."

A number of universities throughout the country have reached interim solutions to mass student protests.

Students have demanded free education after President Jacob Zuma declared there would be no fees increase for 2016. Thousands of higher education students took to the streets in recent weeks voicing their disdain for the price tag attached to studies.
