Exams postponed at University of Mpumalanga

South Africa

The University of Mpumalanga has postponed exams that were supposed to take place on Thursday. This comes after a disruption of examinations by workers affiliated to Nehawu. The workers have accused the University’s management of corruption and mismanagement.

Nehawu is expected to embark on a march to hand over a memorandum of grievances to the Department of Higher Education and Training on Thursday.

Pressure is on for the Vice Chancellor, Professor Thoko Mayekiso and other members of the management to resign. South African Communist Party (SACP)’s  Secretary in the Philip Radebe District, Bhobert Nkosi says they will be part of the march organised by Nehawu.

Nehawu had earlier this week made threats about a total shutdown taking place at the university if management failed to meet their needs.

Management at the university have committed to work with the leadership of Nehawu to find possible solutions.
