Students had shut down the campus, as part of the South African University Student Union’s call for a seven day national shutdown over registration, student debt and student accomodation.It is the fourth day of the National shutdown.

Tactical teams are beginning to disarm and are getting rid of their bullet proof vests and stun guns.

SABC reporter Seentleng Lehihi has more:

Workers did try to report for duty but the were reluctant to enter the campus because of the impasse between the security and students. This as out-sourced workers at the Mahikeng campus risk losing a portion of their salaries owing to the shutdown. Workers have been unable to report for duty since Monday.
