The student representative council (SRC) of the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Westville campus has been suspended.

In a statement sent to staff and students on Tuesday, the UKZN's central SRC president Sanele Hlongwane said a special meeting was held on March 13 to discuss the issue of the EFF-led Westville SRC. “Among the points that were discussed at the meeting was the case of the Westville campus representative council (WCRC), which has been reported several times to the office of the deputy president for misconduct by students and other SRC members,” said Hlongwane.

The suspension of the student body comes after protesters set fire to a building and a quad bike at the Risk Management Service building and threw rocks at the windows of a guard house on March 13.
