The Management of University of Limpopo (UL) reached an agreement with the Student Representative Council on matters related to the use of National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NFSAS) last Thursday.
The agreement saw academic activities on the Turfloop campus being resumed after protest action by students last Monday had halted classes and other activities.
The protesting students, beneficiaries of NSFAS, were apparently angered by an alleged directive issued by UL Management that meal, travel and accommodation allowances be split. It was also alleged that some of students were enjoying the full NFSAS benefits while others have limited options
“The university will revert to the 100% Eduextra card cared (Wizit) allocation temporarily, pending an investigation on the matter. The academic and administrative activities of the university resumed last Thursday. The Management of the university would like to thank the students and personnel for their understanding and cooperation,” UL Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Mahlo Mokgalong was quoted to have said in a statement issued by UL recently.
