Dear colleagues and students
The events that occurred at the University of Cape Town yesterday are deeply regrettable. We cannot solve the challenges we face through confrontation. We have to go back to talking and engaging with one another while at the same time making every effort to complete the academic year as successfully as we can.
The executive has received a formal request from the SRC Candidates to restart the engagement process following a plenary session that they will be holding today. There is commitment from both the executive and the SRC Candidates to resume the engagement process as soon as possible.
To ensure that these discussions can take place in as peaceful an environment as possible and to de-esacalate the tensions on campus, the Jammie Shuttle service will be suspended for the duration of these discussions today and the libraries will be temporarily closed while the engagement takes place.
A report on the outcome of these discussions will be communicated at the end of the day.
