WINDHOEK, 05 JUN (NAMPA) - The University of Namibia (UNAM) will consider allowing three barred Student Representative Council (SRC) leaders to write their examinations should they express an interest to do so.
In a media statement issued on Monday, UNAM Public Relations Officer, Simon Namesho said the examinations will be written off campus under the university’s examination regulations.
They are SRC vice president Raymond Tjiueza, Vanessa Hifitikeko and Jefrey Shapange.
Under the Student Code of Conduct, the university reserves the right to take all the necessary and appropriate actions to protect the safety and well-being of the campus community.
“The university recognises that under the Student Code of Conduct, students have substantive and procedural rights to be respected and to know the circumstances and manner in which disciplinary provisions will be exercised,” the statement reads.
The three students were last week barred from the main campus because there is overwhelming evidence that they engaged in prohibited or unlawful conduct.
The said students have allegedly broken into UNAM’s main campus property, as well as disorderly and riotous actions, according to the university.
