Johannesburg – Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande has appealed to student who were not required to return to campuses to stay home.
Nzimande said universities could only allow 33% of final year students on campus under level-3 lockdown.
He said this would require a readjustment of the academic year.
Nzimande also spoke about the impact of Covid-19.
“Many of us who are watching and listening now knows someone who has died of COVID-19.”
