NMMU's Swartz meets #feesmustfall protesters after they occupied building

NOVEMBER 16, 2015

Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) Vice-Chancellor, Prof Derrick Swartz, and some members of the institution's Council are currently engaging with students and some outsourced workers.

This is after a group of students occupied the Embizweni Building on South Campus on Monday morning.

"It is a peaceful protest and they are letting staff and students enter the building," the institution's communications office said.

The occupation follows the mass feedback meeting at the Kraal on Friday.

The students who occupied the building have now gathered in the parking lot in front of Embizweni.

On Sunday, the NMMU advised students that the 2015 exams would continue as scheduled.

In October, the NMMU was one of the institutions of higher learning that were affected by the #feesmustfall student protests.
