Management says it's going through the list of demands it's received from student leaders and will respond after its meeting.

Today's protest was also in solidarity with staff who want an 8% salary increase. They've been offered 3.3%.


MUT says it's still in negotiations with the two unions, NEHAWU and TENUSA.
