University of Limpopo Turfloop campus closed

University of Limpopo students have been told by the university to vacate residences by 5pm this afternoon.

EWN correspondent, Pelane Phakgadi, says this follows violent protests and confrontations between police and students.

The university has decided to suspended academic programmes indefinitely.

Phakgadi says some students have been hospitalised with sustained injuries.

Infrastructure was also vandalised during demonstrations, which started last night.

Since last night there are students who have been said to be injured. Some of them are in hospital.

It is not people from the outside who are doing this. We were here to witness it this morning. Campus students from their rooms started forming groups and started pelting stones at campus security.
