Protesting NMU students blockade campus entrance over registration, accommodation

- | a month ago

Students at the Nelson Mandela University (NMU) in Port Elizabeth protested and blockaded the entrance to the institution's South Campus on Monday.

NMU said it was made aware of disruptions to classes and "acts of intimidation" at other campuses and condemned the protest action, it said in an initial post on its official Facebook page earlier on Monday. The protest action was attended by students from various student political organisations, including Sasco, DA Student Organisation (DASO) and the EFF.

NMU said the reasons for the protest action had at that point not been formally communicated to university management, in accordance with the mutually agreed engagement protocol.
