22 November 2016
Cape Town - Examinations at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) are continuing, despite an arson attack that marred the first day, a spokesperson said on Tuesday.
A fire broke out in the multi-purpose hall at the Cape Town campus shortly after midnight on Monday, resulting in limited damage. Business and management sciences exams were moved to other campus buildings.
CPUT spokesperson Lauren Kansley said assessments on all campuses were continuing without incident.
“We have noted above-average attendance for these assessments and believe that this is evidence that the majority of student leaders and students want these exams to take place,” she said.
