Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) Deputy Minister Buti Manamela has announced that registration at Capricorn TVET College has been suspended following the stampede on Thursday in which six people were injured.
According to a statement by the DHET, the decision was made following a “thorough risk assessment of the Polokwane campus facilities.”
Registration is expected to resume on Monday.
“We appeal to all prospective students to ensure that they have all the necessary documents to enable the colleges to handle their applications and registration swiftly. I urge all students to follow the procedures for application and registration so that we can resume learning and teaching on Monday,” says Manamela.
We remain grateful of the outstanding work by our security personnel, the police and the paramedics in the manner in which they managed the situation,” Manamela added.
College management, the city council of Polokwane and the South African Police Services are currently trying to find an alternative and more suitable venue for registrations.
