CPUT postpones exams as mediation continues
14 November 2016
Cape Town - Examinations at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) have been postponed by one week as mediation between the institution's management and protesting students continues.
In a communiqué to students on Monday, the day exams had been scheduled to start, acting vice chancellor Dr John Volmink apologised for the "terrible impact" of the postponement, saying that CPUT was doing all it could to bring stability back to its campuses.
University management, Fees Must Fall activists, the SRC and unions said in a joint statement that they would all undertake to ensure that no disruptions take place at campus examination venues.
It was also agreed that private security would be withdrawn from the institution by Tuesday.
