for tomorrow

NMMU News

11/07/2016

THE safety of our staff and students will always be a key priority. With this is mind, and coupled with the need to start the second semester, management has been engaged all day with various groups towards seeking solutions to the many #FeesMust Fall student and staff related issues raised.
One of the biggest concerns following the 1 July insourcing of security personnel into the employ of NMMU is that the security points at the University are currently not adequately staffed.  NMMU management has been engaged with union and task team representatives in an attempt to resolve this unsatisfactory security situation. Without the committed and comprehensive presence of protection service employees around our campuses, the safety and security of staff, students and facilities is compromised.
 
Unfortunately, the various engagements could not be concluded today and will therefore continue tomorrow.
 
Management is determined to do all it can to get these matters resolved  so that the academic project can continue.
 
We thank you for your patience and will keep you informed of ongoing developments.
