Students from the Durban University of Technology (DUT) have vowed to continue protesting until the institution’s management reopens the registration process and improve conditions at residences.

The Indumiso Campus in Imbali has been brought to a standstill on Tuesday and Wednesday and the students representative council (SRC) has warned that protests could spread to the Riverside Campus in Pietermaritzburg and to DUT’s other campuses in Durban on Thursday.

Speaking to The Witness, Thabo Tsheme, spokesperson for the South African Students Congress (Sasco) in KwaZulu-Natal, said students were being excluded from DUT because of errors made by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).
