TUT Students on Strike (Photo: Wilson Tladi)

Striking students at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) blocking entrances with fire at the Soshanguve campuses. Staff at the campuses has been told to resume duties on Wednesday. The students name reforms in the National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), a lack of hot water in residences and the unavailability of free university transport as some of their grievances.

  1. This students sound like they plot a strike whenever we approach exams, how stupid we still pay for the amount of damage caused from our fees...isn't there another way of lodging grievances other than burning stuff that was build with our money?

  3. Im am utterly disgraced at the strike and how it is proceedings, claiming the life of one person. i as a TUT student do agree with the grievances but i am outraged at the course of action that the SRC has taken. they have broken down our residences and terrorised the students residing there. As for the damage caused to building 21 i hope all the SRC and other part-takers are dealt with and handed severe punishment for their actions. In the SA which we live action of such barbaric nature should not be ignored I strongly emplore that the Department of Higher Education intervene, for as a young person the events that have taken place are beyond shameful.

  7. This kind of behavior is uncalled for. I'm pretty sure there's better ways of dealing with issues than violence. this kind of action will get u nowhere. Infact, you are despising yourselves through this kind of action. Will burning property bring u hot water and other services??? Will it pay for your fees?? If so, then maybe you can continue with the strike. But then again, you are supposed to be intellectuals not barbarians.

  8. i think all the src members didnt have predicate to write exam in july that is y they started all this mess so that we can all feel the pain. who was in charge anyway for src nominations? what is the use of having src anyway at school if we will suffer like this. they are just there to waste our time, thats all

    1. Actually these is crap, think of someone who is doin the inservice training or practicals wtevr u can name it......and his plan is not yet approved,while waiting for feedback," suddenly the school jst is shut three campuses in PTA untill futher notice" receiving this info through my sms.what would u do?

      Strike yes, is common, bt we must also think for tomorrow....we lost a life, very bad,

      Why they we strike during exam time?? Yes is understandable that they will reply fast considering the short time remaining for preparation(a strategy) bt why they not providing hot water in winter? A strategy? For what?

      Financial aid, am using it for my tuition fees....believe u me, I jst heard the rumour that we signing the agreement form(bad) bt they managed to send me an sms pertaining the strike and my question is why not informed me of nsfas via the verysame sms?....I think something is fishy....TUT jst have to do it things right from the first time.....that is ppl employd to perform such duties....lot of staff is resistive....I'm now stuck and have only two month to finish my training.so very bad as am exiting this year.....I need my qualification and move on with my carrer. Rresolve plzz.

    2. True but that does not mean students of TUT should accept the conditions their living in especially when other Universities like UP,WITS and UJ have proper campus residential facilities....................

  12. All the above mentioned conditions yo'll speak of are left to the students to resolve cause they live there the said management does not live there for one and by breaking the place it does not resolve anything. Think of the dedicated students who come from far to get an education wasting time is not on the agenda, besides its nearly exam time. There are other ways of trying to get a resolution in such matters.
