The academic programme at the University of Fort Hare’s East London campus has come to a standstill amid a protest by nursing students.

About 300 nursing students were demonstrating outside the campus.

They are demanding the removal of an official from the university‚ over a row involving the deregistration of some students.

At least three students have been served with notice of intended suspension since the class boycott started three weeks ago.
