The University of Eswatini (UNESWA) is set to open tomorrow.

Following the vandalism of university property by students, UNESWA has banned students from holding night meetings.

Two weeks ago, UNESWA students resorted to unsavoury methods following a meeting they held at the Kwaluseni campus, where students from all three campuses had convened to deliberate on their concerns regarding government’s proposed method of distribution of student allowances.

Following the meeting, students resorted to vandalising university property as well as students property. During the chaos, it was reported that the UNESWA book-shop was the most damaged building within the campus.

In a statement released yesterday, UNESWA Registrar Dr Salebona Simelane said  Students, Parents and the Public are hereby informed that the University Senate resolved, at its meeting held on Monday September 9, 2019 that the university should be re-opened for lectures on Thursday September 12, 2019.

Furthermore, all returning students should complete a readmission form making an undertaking by Friday,  September, 13 2019 not to embark on class boycott/toyi-toyi, acts of vandalism, theft of property and intimidation of staff and students in future.  In addition, the Senate resolved that none of the Student Body meetings should be held at night anymore.  

“Students who stay on residence are expected to be back in residence on Wednesday September 11, 2019. Students should collect the forms for readmission from Senior Assistant Registrar’s Offices at Mbabane and Luyengo Campuses and Faculty Administrators’ Offices at Kwaluseni campus,” he said.
