University of Fort Hare students have this morning returned to classes after a two-week-long protest that was characterised by violence.

This comes after the university management and the SRC held a special meeting on Saturday.

Both parties agreed that academic activities should start this week.
However, the call was delayed by a day (Monday) as the SRC wanted the management to commit to their demands in writing.

University vice-chancellor Sakhela Buhlungu sent correspondence to students last night outlining how the university would address the issues.

SRC president Mosuli Cwele confirmed that students have started attending lectures and were happy with the positive response from the management.

“They have committed to addressing the issues students raised and things are back to normal now,” he said.
