STUDENT leaders at the KwaZulu-Natal University yesterday threatened to resume their strike if the institution's management fails to resolve their grievances by tomorrow.
On Tuesday, hundreds of students protested on the institution's premises at Howard Campus.
However, the strike was later suspended by student leaders after meeting with management.
SRC president Thanduxolo Sabelo said yesterday students were briefed about management's response to their grievances and a plea to suspend strike action.
Sabelo said management was given until tomorrow to address the students grievances "or we will take to the streets on Monday".
He said management was already starting to fix some of the outside residences that students were not happy about.
"In some of the outside residences they are now installing study desks with lamps that the students wanted."
He said it is not the students body's aim to disrupt academic programmes but they were only raising students' concerns.
University spokesperson Indu Moodley said:
"The SRC has informed management that they have suspended the protest action at Howard College based on the agreement reached on issues affecting students."
Some of the students' grievances included financial aid to those in need and the high prices of food served within the institution.
The students' strike came less than a week after Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande appointed a task team to probe the Durban University of Technology where protests resulted in the arrest of 69 students.
