Change the world


As at 16:20 today, the fires on campus were largely under control. Metro fire-fighters are still on the scene monitoring the situation and putting out flare-ups as they occur. The fire between Link Road and Letaba Residence on North Campus is currently being attended to.

Deeper into the reserve, there are still two small fires being kept under control by Horticulture Services. These are close to where the fire originated outside NMMU’s boundary fence.

A close watch will be kept on all areas throughout the night.

Thanks to our Emergency Medical Care students who have been supporting the Metro and Horticulture Services.

Your co-operation is much appreciated.
