MEDIA STATEMENT FROM UNIVERSITY OF ZULULAND (UNIZULU)

A group of students (numbering 31 Applicants) obtained on an urgent basis an interim interdict against the University of Zululand & Others on Tuesday, 16 September 2014.

The interim order was obtained in circumstances where the University was not given a reasonable opportunity to oppose the application and/or file opposing papers in respect of the interim relief sought. The effect of the interim Court Order is to put to the operation of the newly elected Student Representative Council on hold pending the outcome of the Court application which is due to be heard on 13 October 2014.

The University is opposing the application. The media report put out by the National Students Movement in relation to the Court proceedings does not correctly reflect the position in terms of the Court papers and the current status of the proceedings.
