The people responsible for the threatening and often verbally violent messages on social media, are reminded that these activities constitute criminal behaviour punishable by law. These individuals are also reminded of the Court Interdict that is still in place.
TUT is a public institution with an obligation to ensure the rights of all students and staff to participate in academic activities in a safe, conducive environment. The University also has a responsibility to ensure the safety of all stakeholders on its campuses, as well as its property.
Any person responsible for inciting violence, threatening the lives of others, threatening the property of TUT or the safety on any of the University’s campuses, is therefore warned that the University will institute suitable action to counter any such threats.
