Classes and shuttle services at the Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth have been temporarily postponed until 10am on all PE campuses due to protest action at North and South campus entrances.
Students blocked off access to the university following reports of another rape incident that happened on campus over the weekend.
“Staff should liaise directly with their line managers for direction,” the university said.
“Further, communication will follow once the University has clarity on the way forward.”
The Nelson Mandela University said that it is looking into the alleged sexual assault incident.
“While a criminal charge was opened against the alleged perpetrator, who is also a student, with the South African Police Service, the University is gathering all the necessary information to pursue concurrent internal disciplinary action,” the university said.
