Students at the Tshwane University of Technology‘s (TUT) Soshanguve campuses are expected to start arriving on Sunday for resumption of lectures on Monday.

He was buried in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga in September.
The institution in a statement says security will be tightened and no criminal activities will be tolerated.
The statement adds that safety is the university’s priority and that a security contingency plan will be implemented.
Students may occupy residences from Sunday to prepare for the resumption of normal activities.
The university added that year-end examinations for students at all TUT campuses, except the Soshanguve North and South campuses, will commence on 12 November.
