CPUT Concludes Emergency Evacuation of Residences

The Emergency Evacuation of Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) Residences has now concluded successfully.

Most students have arrived safely, with a few buses still in transit, in the major provinces of Eastern Cape; Kwazulu-Natal; Gauteng; Limpopo; Mpumalanga; Free State; Northern Cape and North West provinces.

The emergency evacuation was always guided by the utmost appreciation for the safety and security of our staff and students. CPUT Management wishes to thank the students, parents and guardians who understood the need for the campus and residence closures and committed themselves to the process.

We appeal to our CPUT community to continue to reject fake news which attempts to distort the reality and create fear. We believe that the mass take-up of the offer of free transport is proof that the majority of CPUT students reject protest action and want to focus on their studies without being intimidated and bullied to participate in violent and criminal demonstrations.

We wish to thank the Security, Transport, Residence and other staff members who have worked tirelessly throughout the weekend to protect the institution, and complete this Residence Evacuation project successfully. Management will advise on the resumption of the academic project.
