At the beginning of the 2020/2021 academic year, the Sports Department of the University invited spots men and women for a “justified your inclusion” event, during which talented sports men and women was to be identified for possible admission to the University.”
“Subsequent to this, a request was made by the Head of the Sports Department to the University Management to consider offering scholarships to this class of students (Sports Men and Women), which request was later declined at a meeting of Management and the staff of the Sports Department.”
“Prior to this stalemate, a similar issue arose in 2020 where the University Management considered the plea of a similar group of students (Sports Men and Women) to write the semester examination after which they would pay the school fees immediately, however, the students failed to honour their part of the agreement”, the statement added.
