Attempted arson, vandalism and rioting by students have led to the second closure of Limkokwing University of Creative Technolgy (LUCT) this year.

Limkokwing spokesperson, Mercy Thebe said in a press statement yesterday that the university has suspended all student activity until further notice.  She said the decision was taken to ensure public safety and prevention of damage to university facilities and equipment.The unrest by students late last week led to the arrest of suspended Student Representative Council (SRC) president Poloko Pitwane and 12 others on Friday.  The 13 were arraigned before Gaborone magistrate Priscilla Ditlhong on Monday morning.

Pitwane is charged with criminal trespassing.  He is alleged to have contravened Section 305 (1) of the Penal Code by unlawfully entering the LUCT campus under suspension and without authority from the university management.  He is alleged to have done so with intent to commit an offence and annoy the university management by addressing the student community.
