VUTThe Citizen reports that there was still no indication late on Thursday as to when academic activities would resume at the troubled Vaal University of Technology (VUT).  

Management took a decision last week to suspend all academic activities at the campus following the torching of a building situated next to the student residences, which houses a study room, laundry room and an office.  VUT spokesperson Mike Khuboni said management had, for the past couple of days, been working on the rescheduling of exams as well as a catch-up programme.  The exams were initially scheduled to commence on Thursday, but due to last week’s violent protests, the university decided to suspend academic activities until further notice, instructing all students to vacate the residences.
