Acting Rector of the University of the Free State, Nicky Morgan, has sent a statement to students and parents about the impact of the non-completion of the academic year, should lectures be disrupted further.

He warned that six thousand students will not be able to graduate and that the university will also not be able to take in first years.

Morgan added that the interdict against violent protest secured by the University of the Free State (UFS) is still in force and that police will intervene if the interdict is not respected.

The current academic programme has already been extended by one week and some faculties are working weekends to ensure that learning is completed.

UFS, Central University of Technology and North West university campuses are set to reopen tomorrow.
