Chaos breaks out at Unisa's Sunnyside campus

Chaos breaks out at Unisa's Sunnyside campus”

The management of the University of SA (Unisa) is now locked in a meeting with the South African Students Congress (Sasco) in an effort to resolve issues that led to chaos at the university's Sunnyside campus on Monday morning.

Some students also tried to break locks to one of the gates in an attempt to gain access.

Unisa made the call to reopen its registration deadline for the late applications of first-time undergraduate students following a decision on management of walk-ins made by Universities South Africa (USAf) on January 10.

Ramotshela, however, said that he was not certain if those who were jumping the fence were prospective students who were there as late walk-in applicants or those who were there to register.

On January 12, Economic Freedom Fighters Student Command (EFFSC) students shut down Unisa's Sunnyside campus resulting in a clash with ANC Youth League (ANCYL) students who believed that the EFFSC's shutdown was "uncalled for".

He strongly discouraged the actions of the students, calling for calm."There is a power struggle between two student formations".

He also said the university had deployed all its executive management to mediate the situation.

This is the second flare up of chaos at a local campus during registration.

Back in Pretoria, Ramotshela said that access to the campus had been restricted following the chaos. "We have had to let our staff leave the campus for safety reasons‚" Ramotshela said.
