University gets interdict to stop protesting Sasco students
Protesting students are blocking university entrances and "engaging in acts of intimidation to disrupt classes and operations", the Nelson Mandela University said on Wednesday.
The university laid a charge at the Humewood police station in Port Elizabeth earlier Wednesday.
"Management is currently reading the interdict to protesting students, following which it will be enacted," the university said in a statement on its Twitter account.
"Staff and students are advised to exercise care and caution to ensure their safety. Management is presently engaging with the issues."
The Sasco-aligned protesters are demonstrating against a shortage of accommodation and issues around financial allowances.
