unisaNews24 reports that a senior University of South Africa (Unisa) staffer has had his suspension lifted after a group of his colleagues protested outside the institution's main campus in Pretoria on Friday.  

Unisa spokesperson Martin Ramotshela confirmed that the suspension had been withdrawn, but said the investigation would still continue.  He added that operations would resume on Monday, and gave an assurance that the situation would be "restored to normality".  The protests by the members of the registrations division left students with no one to assist them.  But, Ramotshela noted that registrations had closed on Thursday and claimed that there were no major disruptions in respect of registrations.  The protest came just a week after a student protest at the same institution, which prompted the university to extended its registration deadline for undergraduate programmes to the end of January
