Memorandums from both the Bloemfontein and Welkom campuses of the Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT), were handed over to the acting Vice-Chancellor and Principal, David Ngidi, on Wednesday.
This after a peaceful march by the students who travelled 160 km from Welkom to Bloemfontein. The university commended the determination of the students as well as their leaders and support groups, for the undertaking and commitment and “the follow-through that CUT students are known for”.
The university said in a statement that management, together with their teams, will deal with the memorandum of concerns in the coming days and feedback will be given within seven days of the handover, as per the request.
“This movement lives the CUT value of Ubuntu as they travelled the 160 km to Bloemfontein. The students arranged for medical assistance, food, water and other support. Over the past few days, the Bloemfontein campus students have been supporting the team in their peaceful march,” said the organisation.
