University of KwaZulu-Natal student representative council (SRC) president Sifiso Simelane has disputed that 2,000 students who have been studying for eight years or more for three-year degrees have been excluded.
According to a Sowetan Live article, the university issued a statement on Thursday which read: "The university recently removed some 2,000 individuals who have been 'professional students' on three-year degrees for eight years or more without paying fees and routinely holding the institution to ransom through unrest for personal concessions,”
Simelane says they will be meeting with the university's management over the matter.
There are no 2,000 students that have been excluded. We believe that the university wants to use this so-called connotation of 'professional students' to hide behind excluding students financially.— Sifiso Simelane, SRC President - UKZN
The same university said that there are only 31 students that were excluded so where does the 2,000 come from now?— Sifiso Simelane, SRC President - UKZN
