Over 200 students protesting about debt and a shortage of accommodation then marched to the home of Wits vice-chancellor Zeblon Vilakazi in order to “place pressure” on him to meet their demands.

However, the university stated in a written statement that the demand for historical debt had been modified from the original demand.

They now want to enable students who owe up to R150 000 to register.

“Given resource constraints, the university is not able to allow all students across all programmes, whether full-time, part-time or occasional, to register without them meeting the re-registration requirements,” Wits said in a statement.

“This will further only be applicable to students seeking to register for the programme that they were registered in for the 2022 academic year, and not for registration towards new programmes, part-time and/or occasional studies.

“The university will endeavour to seek external donor funds for this once-off concession, to assist academically excellent students. The university will accordingly allow the late registration of students who fall into this cohort of students only.”
