Staff at Rhodes oppose interdict


DOZENS of Rhodes University academics and other staff are opposing an interim high court interdict prohibiting protesters on campus from unlawful activities such as kidnapping, assault and intimidation.

Yesterday marked the return date of the interim interdict, which would have been made final but for the last-minute opposition by about 38 staff members.

The interim interdict was granted last month following extraordinary oral evidence given by the university’s top managers, wardens and security.

Acting Judge Sadia Jacobs yesterday postponed the matter to September 1 for argument. Those opposing the interdict have until June 6 to file their answering papers.
