Three students were stabbed on the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) Polokwane campus this week.
The attack yesterday was sparked by an argument related to student leadership elections held on campus, TUT spokesperson Willa de Ruyter said today.
The injured students received treatment at a local hospital and were discharged.
“The alleged perpetrator, who was assaulted by bystanders, has been apprehended and is currently under police guard in hospital. The police have already launched an investigation into the matter,” said De Ruyter.
The university instituted an internal investigation. De Ruyter said the institution was weapon-free, and had security measures in place to ensure the safety of staff and students.
