A shutdown at the University of KwaZulu-Natal's Howard College campus has continued into its second day as students demonstrated over fees debt.
Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) student command campus chairperson Mphathi Majola has told IOL that they are against students being asked to pay 15% of the historical debt they owed.
Eyewitness News reporter Nkosikhona Duma has more on the story.
They're saying that this is improper because Higher Education Minister Dr Blade Nzimande had said that all NSFAS qualifying students are not supposed to pay any upfront fees for registration.— Nkosikhona Duma, Reporter - EWN
The university - when I had a conversation with the spokesperson - said to me that what the student leadership is not understanding is that there are different categories of students. He said that they are allowing NSFAS qualifying students to register but what they are not allowing is the cancellation of historic debt and that students need to sign an acknowledgement of debt form before they can be allowed to register.— Nkosikhona Duma, Reporter - EWN
